Fast and Accurate 3D Edge Detection for Surface Reconstruction [chapter]

Christian Bähnisch, Peer Stelldinger, Ullrich Köthe
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Although edge detection is a well investigated topic, 3D edge detectors mostly lack either accuracy or speed.  ...  We give theoretical bounds for the accuracy and show experimentally that our approach reaches these bounds while the often-used subpixel-accurate parabola fit leads to much higher edge displacements.  ...  The Canny edge detection algorithm has been extended to 3D in [10] by using recursive filters.  ...

A Review of Image Binarization Techniques for Ancient Degraded Documents

2015 International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)  
Image Binarization Technique depends on the segmentation technique which is major technique for separation of pixel values such as black as foreground and white as background.  ...  Segmentation of the degraded document images can be done by using image binarization techniques in order to acquire a clear image which will be visible means which is easy to understand them.  ...  The first step includes is image enhancement using morphological closing operation and detection process is carried out by morphological dilation using edge detector.  ...

Experimental performance characterization of adaptive filters

G. Appenzeller, J.L. Crowley
1996 Proceedings of 13th International Conference on Pattern Recognition  
Our method is applied to adaptive filters. By analyzing the system architecture we chose an evaluation level and derive the evaluation criteria and parameter control strategies.  ...  The results show that none of the tested techniques performs better than linear filters or the Canny edge detector.  ...  Using a recursive splitting algorithm the chains are transformed into segments. The segments are matched and the 3D scene description is calculated.  ...
