We present an edge detection method based on a water-flow model and gradient information. The gradient magnitude image emphasizes edges of objects in an image and effective extraction of well-defined and connected edges having large gradient values follows. The proposed method can be classified as a locally adaptive thresholding method. To show the effectiveness of the proposed method, its simulation results for various noise-free and noisy synthetic and real images are compared with those of conventional methods. In addition, edge evaluation results of five edge detection methods are shown quantitatively.
