Extraction of Shape Skeletons from Grayscale Images

Z.Sibel Gőktepe Tari, Jayant Shah, Homer Pien
1997 Computer Vision and Image Understanding  
Since it is seldom possible to extract complete shape skeletons to arrive at the essential skeleton of the shape outlines from a noisy grayscale image, this is obviously a very [17] .  ...  The key point is that the edge strength may be calculated from grayscale images without first extracting losophy behind segmentation functionals is to introduce the shape outline.  ...  the shape outline has already been extracted in the form of a closed curve from the grayscale image.  ...

Emilio Antunez, Leonidas Guibas
2008 Pattern Recognition (ICPR), Proceedings of the International Conference on  
The resulting grayscale skeletonization routine extracts a topologically-consistent skeleton of curve-like features at all scales and intensities of the image.  ...  We propose novel thinning conditions for grayscale 3D images that do not rely on image thresholding or segmentation.  ...  Extracting a skeleton from one or more binary versions of the image can be unnecessarily costly and yield fragile results.  ...

Skeletonization by Gradient Regularization and Diffusion

F. LeBourgeois, H. Emptoz
2007 Proceedings of the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition  
This paper describes a skeletonization process for grayscale or color images based on the diffusion of the color gradient vectors by using a simple iterative regularization scheme.  ...  Our approach is very simple to implement and can be applied to natural noisy color images of old documents.  ...  The skeleton is extracted by tracking the ridges of this edge strength map. An homothetic erosion of the grayscale image is also used to extract skeletons [13] .  ...
