Abstract
This paper presents a novel raster-to-vector technique for digital images by advanced watershed decomposition coupled with some ad-hoc heuristics devoted to obtain high quality rendering of digital photography. The system is composed by two main steps: first, the image is partitioned into homogeneous and contiguous regions using Watershed decomposition. Then, a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) representation of such areas is achieved by ad-hoc chain code building. The final result is an SVG file of the image that can be used for the transmission of pictures through Internet using different display systems (PC, PDA, Cellular Phones). Experimental results and comparisons provide the effectiveness of the proposed method.
