[EDIT: Fri May 13 20:58:34 UTC 2011 - Reformat - MKF]

I want to find the x n y coordinates and pixel value of the centroid. Here is the code I have:

I = imread('mobil.png'); %I2 = imtophat(I,strel('disk',15)); level = graythresh(I); bw = im2bw(I,level); I2 = 1 - bw; I2 = bwareaopen(I2, 200); I3 = imfill(I2, 'holes'); s = regionprops(I3, 'centroid'); centroids = cat(1, s.Centroid); imshow(I3) hold on plot(centroids(:,1), centroids(:,2), 'b*') hold off impixelinfo

The car is :

Accepted answer

centroids = round(centroids); cent_vals = Inotbw(sub2ind(size(Inotbw),centroids(:,2),centroids(:,1)))

i have revise the question

i mean the pixel coordinates

sorry for the missunderstanding..

Then that should just be

round(centroids)

to within the nearest pixel.

Is there a reason you are using the Pixel List instead of doing as Sean suggested to you before:

round the coordinates returned from regionprops and use those as indices to get the centroid.

because i can't get the coordinates ..

so i think i can get the coordinates use the pixelinfo

It works perfectly for me; I only had to modify the extraction to I instead of I3, as Walter and I had hypothesized about.

I = imread('ans513.png'); %your image level = graythresh(I); bw = im2bw(I,level); I2 = 1 - bw; I2 = bwareaopen(I2, 200); I3 = imfill(I2, 'holes'); s = regionprops(I3, 'centroid'); centroids = cat(1, s.Centroid); imshow(I3) hold on plot(centroids(:,1), centroids(:,2), 'b*') hold off centroids = round(centroids); idxr = sub2ind(size(I3),centroids(:,2),centroids(:,1)); pixPerPlane = size(I3,1)*size(I3,2); idxg = idxr+pixPerPlane; idxb = idxg+pixPerPlane; rgbCents = reshape(I([idxr;idxg;idxb]),[],3);

%{ rgbCents = 147 146 144 145 145 143 66 62 63 11 79 102 %%%This is the value of the pixel at the center of your car 86 77 72 83 70 64 %}

well it's a BINARY IMAGE!!!!!!!! That means only 1s and 0s and since your car is white it's a 1.

11 79 102 are the rgb intensity components of the original image.

imtool(I)

%hold your mouse near the centroid...

%or

imshow(I)

hold on

plot(centroids(:,1), centroids(:,2), 'b*')

hold off

Have a great weekend!

(hopefully away from the computer screen)

i'm sorry for the wrong question

what i search is the

pixel coordinates from my centroid

sorry for the wrong question

Not sure how I messed this question (a year and a half ago), but I have a tutorial in my File Exchange where I find centroids: BlobsDemo
