This paper is concerned with the application of active contour methods to unsupervised binary segmentation of high resolution sonar images. First texture features are extracted from a side scan image containing two distinct regions. A region based active contour model of Chan and Vese [2000] is then applied to the vector valued images extracted from the original data. The set of features considered is the Haralick feature set based on the cooccurrence matrix. To improve computational efficiency… CONTINUE READING
