Description

regiongrowing_nregiongrowing_nRegiongrowingNRegiongrowingNRegiongrowingN performs a multi-channel regiongrowing. The n channels give rise to an n-dimensional feature vector. Neighboring points are aggregated into the same region if the difference of their feature vectors with respect to the given metric lies in the interval [MinToleranceMinToleranceMinToleranceMinToleranceminTolerance, MaxToleranceMaxToleranceMaxToleranceMaxTolerancemaxTolerance]. Only neighbors of the 4-neighborhood are examined. The following metrics can be used:

Let g_{A} denote the gray value in the feature vector A at point a of the image, and likewise be g_{B} the gray value in the feature vector B at point a neighboring point b. Let g(d) be the gray value with index d. Furthermore, let MinT denote MinToleranceMinToleranceMinToleranceMinToleranceminTolerance and MaxT denote MaxToleranceMaxToleranceMaxToleranceMaxTolerancemaxTolerance.
