In many practical applications such as security and surveillance, robotics, medical diagnostics, remote sensing, video processing the image segmentation plays a dominant role. In general the image segmentation is performed either hierarchical method or model based methods. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages. Integrating these two methods will provide efficient utilization of resources and increases segmentation performance. Hence, in this paper an image segmentation method based on…
