An Innovative Homotopic Algorithm for Image Border Detection


R.M.Noorullah, A.Damodaram


Vol. 8  No. 11  pp. 383-385


Several algorithms have long been investigated for border detection. The border is a compact abstract object representation that preserves the shape and the size of the original object encoding an image as a set of object borders allows this image to be partially reconstructed and progressively refined back to the original image. In the present paper an innovative algorithm that simplifies the border detection using homotopic property is presented. The present algorithm introduces a new notion for order independent and dependent border detection. The present algorithm is implemented on human faces and characters, and good results are obtained.
