2-d analogues of Allen Interval Algebra for image analysis: towards justification
2001 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics. e-Systems and e-Man for Cybernetics in Cyberspace (Cat.No.01CH37236)
In reasoning about time and duration, researchers often use Allen's Interval Algebra. This algebra describes possible relations between 1-D intervals. An interval can precede the other one, follow the other one, start the other one, etc. This algebra describes the relationship between different intervals in terms of words from natural language. To give a natural language description of 2D images, it is desirable to develop a similar approach for describing the relationship between 2-D objectsdoi:10.1109/icsmc.2001.972879 dblp:conf/smc/StarksIK01 fatcat:cmsce4getjfylawluq6c2ujbjy
