Fuzzy Watershed For Image Segmentation

Título: Fuzzy Watershed For Image Segmentation

Autores: Moreno, Ramón; Graña, Manuel

Resumo: The representation of the RGB color space points in spherical coordinates allows to retain the chromatic components of image pixel colors, pulling apart easily the intensity component. This representation allows the definition of a chromatic distance. Using this distance we define a fuzzy gradient with good properties of perceptual color constancy. In this paper we present a watershed based image segmentation method using using this fuzzy gradient. Oversegmentation is corrected applying a region merging strategy based on the chromatic distance defined on the spherical coordinate representation.
