Watershed of a continuous function

Laurent Najman, Michel Schmitt
1994 Signal Processing  
The notion of watershed, used in morphological segmentation, has only a digital definition. In this paper, we propose to extend this definition to the continuous plane.  ...  We then present a metric in the plane for which the watershed is a skeleton by influence zones and show the lower semicontinuous behaviour of the associated skeleton.  ...  On the other hand, mathematical morphology uses the watershed of the norm of the gradient of f in order to extract edges.  ...
