Canny Edge Detection



20 Jul 2004 (Updated )

canny edge detection including gaussian smoothing code

| Watch this File

File Information

canny edge detection comprising of gaussian convolution,sobel operation.entire code is free of any in built matlab function except for image reading.threshold must be changed depending on the image and the feature to be extracted.

Do check out the updated gaussian convolution file , its more accurate than the previous one

Please note that the code execution time is low.This is because no inbuilt functions are used.
In order to improve up on speed please substitute the convolution code with the inbuilt function "conv2"

MATLAB release MATLAB 5.2 (R10)
Other requirements preferrably pentium 4 processor

Strange. If I download this submission, I get a txt file, which contains a C++ function, but without a Mex-interface. It looks like it would smooth an image, which must be delivered as INT***. The function cannot be compiled, because the subfunction CreateImageMatrix is not included. I looks like the submission at 07 Apr 2008 was destroyed by an accident.
This function cannot be compiled or used, especially not in Matlab. But inspite of this, 500 people download it per month without leaving a rating or comment. Strange, as said already.

The structure of the files is too poor. Comments were invented to explain the code, not to hide lines of code not to be executed. Once organized is useful, tho
