Topics

Edge Detection

Edge detection is a technique for finding the boundaries of objects within an image.

Boundary Tracing in Images

You can display the boundaries of a single object or of all objects in an image.

Hough Transform

The Hough transform detects lines in an image, including lines tilted at arbitrary angles from vertical and horizontal. The Hough transform tends to be quick, but can exhibit artifacts.

Detect Lines Using the Radon Transform

This example shows how to detect lines and identify the strongest lines in an image using the Radon transform.

Quadtree Decomposition

Quadtree decomposition is useful as a first step in adaptive image compression. The decomposition involves subdividing an image into homogenous blocks.
