Chapter 3:
Morphological Processing of Binary Images
The present chapter covers some morphological algorithms for binary images. These include boundary detection, conditional dilation, curve filling, thinning, segmentation, and restoration. The next chapter explores algorithms employing the hit-or-miss transform. The intent is not to produce a complete compilation of morphological algorithms, but rather to provide a geometrically grounded introduction to some of the most useful techniques. In all cases, it should be recognized that actual use of a particular methodology will often require preprocessing to put the image into a form suitable for application of the algorithm and postprocessing to provide an acceptable output image.
