Improved document image segmentation algorithm using multiresolution morphology
Page segmentation into text and non-text components is an essential preprocessing step before OCR operation. If this is not done properly, an OCR classification engine produces g...

Fuzzy c-means image segmentation of side-scan sonar images
Synthetic aperture side-scan sonar (SAS) is an imaging modality for detecting objects on the sea floor and in shallow water. SAS images provide an echo of an object along with its...

Fast Graph Segmentation Based on Statistical Aggregation Phenomena
In this paper, we first generalize a recent statistical color image segmentation algorithm [5] to arbitrary graphs, and report its performance for 2D images, 3D meshes and volume...

Image Segmentation Using Region Merging Combined with a Multi-class Spectral Method
In this paper we propose an image segmentation algorithm that combines region merging with spectral-based techniques. An initial partitioning of the image into primitive regions i...

Competitive Segmentation: A Struggle for Image Space
In this paper, we propose a competitive image segmentation algorithm. It is a dynamic evolving optimization method, which we call the population algorithm. The method is inspired f...
