Split and Merge: A Region Based Image Segmentation

Anju Bala, Aman Kumar Sharma
2018 International Journal of Emerging Research in Management and Technology  
Image segmentation is a very challenging task in digital image processing field.  ...  It is defined as the process of takeout objects from an image by dividing it into different regions where regions that depicts some information are called objects.  ...  SPLIT AND MERGE Split and merge is based on the divide and conquer approach. In it input image is divided into sub regions until the sub regions become small enough for segmentation.  ...
