9 January 1984 A Sequential Thinning Algorithm For Image Skeletonization
Author Affiliations +
A sequential thinning algorithm is presented, which maintains connectivity within a 3-by-3 window to produce a pixel-thin skeleton from a connected, unevenly thick skeleton. The algorithm can be readily adapted for either 4-neighbor or 8-neighbor connectedness to aid the shape extraction of an object in a complex scene. The algorithm includes an efficient test for connectivity thereby minimizing processing time.
