Abstract
A new approach to the extraction of the polygonal approximation is presented. The method obtains a smaller set of the important features by means of an evolutionary algorithm. A genetic approach with some heuristics, improves contour approximation search by starting with a parallel search at various points in the contour. The algorithm uses genetic algorithms to encode a polygonal approximation as a chromosome and evolve it to provide a polygonal approximation. Experimental results are provided.
