A report on Morphological Image Processing presented by Sarjana Singh , a student of SOE, CUSAT (2007-2011 batch)
Morphology is a theory and technique for the analysis and processing of geometrical
structures, based on set theory and random functions. Morphology is most commonly
applied to digital images, but it can be employed as well on graphs, meshes, solids,
and many other spatial structures. Morphology was originally developed for binary
images, and was later extended to grayscale functions and images. The purpose of
morphological processing is primarily to remove imperfections added during segmentation.
The basic operations are erosion and dilation .Using the basic operations we can perform
opening and closing More advanced morphological operation can then be implemented
using combination of all of these.
