In this paper, we make a comparative study on morphological skeletonization (MSK) and fuzzy medial axis transformation (FMAT). Methods have been proposed to construct convex FMAT from the morphological skeleton points and to translate FMAT to MSK, respectively. For the case of translating MSK to convex FMAT, the experimental results reveal that the combination of the proposed method and the redundant removal algorithm is very effective. Especially, the combined method is faster than the original method for constructing convex FMAT of smoothed images.
