Robust region segmentation based on a pseudo-distance map

Byoung-Ki Jeon
2004 Journal of Electronic Imaging (JEI)  
We present a robust region segmentation method based on a pseudo-distance map (PDM) that uses a watershed algorithm as a segmentation tool.  ...  We also propose a simple and efficient region-merging criterion that considers both boundary strengths and inner intensities of regions to be merged.  ...  Through several experiments we showed that the proposed region-merging criterion, along with the PDM-based method, yielded final segmentation results superior to conventional methods.  ...

Model design for scalable two-dimensional model-based video coding

M. Hu, S. Worrall, A.H. Sadka, A.M. Kondoz
2002 Electronics Letters  
As the boundary is almost a line in some positions, no point is allocated if we only use curvature as a criterion. This is not the optimal mesh structure based on the results in [7] .  ...  Using curvature as a criterion has some advantages. First, the number of points can be easily controlled. Points are allocated on the position with highest curvature first.  ...
