This set of Matlab tools consists of some functions that I have found useful for basic image processing and blob analysis.
When working with binary objects (4-connected foreground regions), I have often found it useful to measure features from the boundary stored as a list of coordinates. In other words, sometimes it is better to work with a polygon defining the foreground-background boundary than to work with a black and white image of the object. The boundary of an object in a binary (black and white) image can be stored as a list of pixel corner coordinates. The function
The toolbox also contains
Also included is code for watershed segmentation by flooding from selected sources, fast calculation of object centroids etc.
The usage of each the function is described by typing
help function at the MATLAB command prompt, where
The M-file script
kftoolsDemo shows an example of the usage of all of the functions in this toolbox.
