A morphological scale-space representation is presented based on a morphological strong filter, the levelings. The scale-properties are analysed and illustrated. From one scale to the next, details vanish, but the contours of the remaining objects are preserved sharp and perfectly localised. This paper is followed by a companion paper on pde formula- tions of levelings.
