%An implementation of [1]
%  img: input image
%J_map parameters:

%  J_scale: the scale of J-window
%valley parameters:
%  local_neighbor: the radius of the local valley
%speed map parameter:
%  J_threshold: threshold that above which is recognize as edge
%  J_sigma: the range of J-value belonging to edge
%merging parameters:
%  merging_th: the distance less than which would be merged

%color image segmentation:
img = imread(img_dir);
img = im2double(img);
%compute the Jmap
[Jmap, q_img] = cmp_Jmap(img, J_scale, n_colors);
%find the valleys:
Jmap_seeds = local_min_img(-Jmap, local_neighbor);
Jmap_seeds = im2double(Jmap_seeds);
%comput the speed map:
speed_map = speedTrans(Jmap, J_threshold, J_sigma);
%comput the oversegmentation:
labels = seededRegionGrowing(Jmap_seeds, speed_map);
%region merging:
L = Region_merging(q_img, labels-1, n_colors, max(labels(:)), merging_th);
%comput the boundary:
[cx, cy] = gradient(L);
cont = cx.^2+cy.^2;
bw_cont = cont>1;
seg_img = img;
for i=1:size(img, 3)
    sub_img = seg_img(:, :, i);
    sub_img(bw_cont) = 1;
    seg_img(:, :, i) = sub_img;
%display the segmented image:
figure, imshow(seg_img, []);
%display the results:
subplot(2, 2, 1), imshow(img);
subplot(2, 2, 2), imshow(Jmap+Jmap_seeds, []), title('seeds');
subplot(2, 2, 3), imshow(label2rgb(labels)), title('over segmentation');
subplot(2, 2, 4), imshow(label2rgb(L)), title('segmentation');
