watersheds_threshold — Extract watershed basins from an image using a threshold.
watersheds_threshold segments regions (basins)
that are separated from each other by a watershed that has a
height of at least
In the first step,
watersheds_threshold computes the watersheds
without applying a threshold, resulting in the same basins that would be
obtained when calling
watersheds (for more details please refer to
the description of
watersheds). In the second step, the basins are
successively merged if they are separated by a watershed that is smaller than
Threshold. Let and be the minimum
gray values of two neighboring basins and W the minimum gray value
of the watershed that separates the two basins. The watershed is eliminated
and the two basins are merged if
The thus obtained basins are returned in
Threshold is set to 0,
watersheds except that no watersheds but only expanded
basins are returned. If
Threshold is set to the maximum gray value
Image then no two basins are separated by a watershed
Threshold, and hence,
Basins will contain only

watersheds always returns TRUE. The behavior with
respect to the input image and output regions can be determined by
setting the values of the flags 'no_object_result',
'empty_region_result', and 'store_empty_region'
set_system. If necessary, an exception is raised.
