Distance transform of binary image

`D = bwdist(BW)`

[D,IDX] = bwdist(BW)

[D,IDX] = bwdist(BW,* method*)

[gpuarrayD, gpuarrayIDX]= bwdist(gpuarrayBW)

`D = bwdist(BW)`

computes
the Euclidean distance transform of the binary image `BW`

.
For each pixel in `BW`

, the distance transform assigns
a number that is the distance between that pixel and the nearest nonzero
pixel of `BW`

. `bwdist`

uses the
Euclidean distance metric by default. `BW`

can have
any dimension. `D`

is the same size as `BW`

.

`[D,IDX] = bwdist(BW)`

also
computes the closest-pixel map in the form of an index array, `IDX`

.
(The closest-pixel map is also called the feature map, feature transform,
or nearest-neighbor transform.) `IDX`

has the same
size as `BW`

and `D`

. Each element
of `IDX`

contains the linear index of the nearest
nonzero pixel of `BW`

.

`[D,IDX] = bwdist(BW,`

computes
the distance transform, where * method*)

`method`

`method`

`[gpuarrayD, gpuarrayIDX]= bwdist(gpuarrayBW)`

computes
the Euclidean distance transform of the binary image `gpuarrayBW`

,
performing the operation on a GPU. The images must be 2-D and have
less than 2^{32-1} elements. In addition,
you can only compute the Euclidean distance metric. This syntax requires
the Parallel Computing Toolbox™.

Code Generation support: Yes.

MATLAB Function Block support: Yes.

`BW`

can be numeric or logical, and it must
be nonsparse. `D`

is a single matrix with the same
size as `BW`

. The class of `IDX`

depends
on the number of elements in the input image, and is determined using
the following table.

Class | Range |
---|---|

`'uint32'` | `numel(BW)` <= 2^{32} −
1 |

`'uint64'` | `numel(BW)` >= 2^{32} |

`gpuarrayBW`

can be a 2-D gpuArray of type `uint8`

, `uint16`

, `uint32`

, `int8`

, `int16`

, `int32`

, `single`

, `double`

or `logical`

. `gpuarrayD`

is
a gpuArray with the same size as `gpuarrayBW`

and
underlying class `single`

. `gpuarrayIDX`

is
a gpuArray with the same size as `gpuarrayBW`

and
underlying class `uint32`

.
