Segmentation via the Intensity Axis of Symmetry

  • John M. Gauch
Part of the Springer Series in Perception Engineering book series (SSPERCEPTION)


The previous chapter described how the IAS can be calculated for an image. This chapter explains how the IAS can be used to segment an image into sensible image regions. Before this is demonstrated, several methods for displaying the IAS are illustrated. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the effects of preprocessing the image before computing the IAS and its induced image segmentation.
