File Information

shape description using FD fourier coeeficeients used for shape classification.
the steps :
1 . find the indexes borders of edged image (input binary edged image see test for example)
2. sort the indexes so they in distance order
3. make complex vecotr x+jy
4 make fft
5 take first FD
6. make ifft

currently the algorithm works for only symmetrical shapes !!!
 i promise to improve it for all the shapes

Did you improve the algorithm for non symmetrical shapes?
