i have created white boxes inside a big black box as follows:

A=zeros(70,70); % black box

A(15:23,50:55)=1;% white box

A(50:60,50:55)=1;% white box

A(20:23,10:13)=1 ;% white box

imshow(A,[])

how can i add to the same matrix A a white circle or a white sphere?thanks in advance.

Accepted answer

A=zeros(70,70); r = 10; %radius m = {40,40}; %midpoint A(m{:})=1; B = imdilate(A,strel('disk', r,0) ); imshow(B)

**ADD** wutout Image Processing Toolbox

A=zeros(70,70); r = 10; %radius P = [40,40]; %midpoint [m n ] = size(A); X = bsxfun(@plus,(1:m)',zeros(1,n)); Y = bsxfun(@plus,(1:n),zeros(m,1)); B = sqrt(sum(bsxfun(@minus,cat(3,X,Y),reshape(P,1,1,[])).^2,3))<=r; imagesc(B)

A=zeros(70,70);

r = 10; %radius

m = {40,40}; %midpoint

A(m{:})=1;

B = bwdist(A) <= r;

imshow(B)

Thanks, Friedrich!

Adding my variant without Image Processing Toolbox

Hi,

can this help?

function out = my_circ( A, midpoint, radius )

out = A; [ m n] = size(A);

for i=1:m for j=1:n if norm( [i,j] - midpoint ) <= radius out(i,j) = 1; end end end

end

And call it through:

>> A = zeros(100); >> B = my_circ(A,[40,40],10); >> imshow(B,[]);

Hi this was really helpful. How do you do this to create two different sizes of circles.

Thanks inadvance
