Geometric determinants of shape segmentation: Tests using segment identification

Elias H. Cohen, Manish Singh
2007 Vision Research  
The geometric determinants of shape decomposition were studied using a performance-based method.  ...  Observers' identification of contour segments was shown to be systematically modulated by their curvature properties, and by the geometric properties of the enclosed region.  ...  This paper reports a series of psychophysical experiments designed to quantify geometric influences on the part-based representation of visual shape.  ...

Texture Segmentation by Grouping Ellipse Ensembles via Active Contours

Gui-Song Xia, Fei Yuan
2011 Procedings of the British Machine Vision Conference 2011  
We address the problem of unsupervised segmentation of textural images by relying on morphological image representations and active contours.  ...  More precisely, starting with the assumption that textures are statistical ensembles of local image structures, known as textons, we first suggest to represent a texture image through a tree of ellipses  ...  Segmentation by grouping ellipses with active contours Partitioning an image into different regions of homogeneous texture with active contours has been widely studied [2, 14, 20] .  ...

A Review on 2D Image Representation Methods

Bineeth Kuriakose, Preena K P
2015 International Journal of Engineering Research and  
Image Representation is the process of generating descriptions from the visual contents of an image.  ...  The paper ends with the suggestion of introducing a representation which can understandable by both a human and machine.  ...  Structural contour-based approaches include chain code [32] , polygon decomposition [33] , b-splines [34] , and shape invariants such as geometric, algebraic and differential invariants.  ...

Visual judgment of similarity across shape transformations: Evidence for a compositional model of articulated objects

Elan Barenholtz, Michael J. Tarr
2008 Acta Psychologica  
Two types of comparisons were made: in the figure/ground-reversal, the invalid articulation consisted of exactly the same contour transformation as the valid one with reversed figural polarity.  ...  We compared similarity judgments in a task in which subjects had to decide which of the two transformed versions of a 'base' shape-one a 'biologically valid' articulation and one a geometrically similar  ...  Knowledge of these geometric regularities may provide the visual system with a capacity to 'predict' the kinds of shape changes an object may undergo.  ...

Review of Nuclei Detection, Segmentation in Microscopic Images

Rujuta O, Vyavahare AJ
2017 Journal of Bioengineering and Biomedical Sciences  
Recently some automatic methods have been evolving in digital histopathology with growing application related to nuclear detection and segmentation.  ...  Generally nuclear shape is convex in shape therefore overlapping nuclei detected by concavities has to be separate out through geometric reasoning, which is explained by following steps: 1) Detection of  ...  The obtained result is a binarized image of blobs (a single nucleus or a clump of nuclei), which are either validated or partitioned further through geometric reasoning.  ...

Characterizing Images by the Gromov-Hausdorff Distances Between Derived Hierarchies

Amin Fehri, Santiago Velasco-Forero, Fernand Meyer
2018 2018 25th IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP)  
A hierarchy is a series of nested partitions in which a coarser partition results from merging regions of finer ones.  ...  In this paper the hierarchies are constructed with the versatile stochastic watershed algorithm and their inter-distances are measured with the Gromov-Hausdorff distance.  ...  The main idea is to quantify the distance between different hierarchical representations to characterize images.  ...
