We present a novel method to obtain high quality skeletons of binary shapes. The obtained skeletons are connected and one pixel thick. They do not require any pruning or any other post-processing. The computation is composed of two major parts. First, a small set of salient contour points is computed. We use Discrete Curve Evolution, but any other robust method could be used. Second, particle filters are used to obtain the skeleton. The main idea is that the particles walk along the skeletal… Expand
