Active Contour Toolbox

05 Jul 2006 (Updated )

This toolbox provides some functions to segment an image or a video using active contours

po_square(center, width, tilt, number_of_edges, resolution)
function square = po_square(center, width, tilt, number_of_edges, resolution)
%po_square: instantiation of a closed polygon sampling a square
%   p = po_square(c, w, t, n, s) computes a closed polygon sampling the square
%   of center c, width w, and tilt angle t with either n regularly spaced
%   vertices (or equivalently n edges) or a vertex every s pixels. Resolution s
%   is used unless n is strictly greater than 3. s does not have to be an
%   integer. If n is strictly greater than 3, then it must be equal to 4*i for
%   an integer i.
%   t is in degrees.
