Paper Abstract

The digitization of the skeleton is the source of many difficulties. The skeleton of a binary set can be defined as the set of crest points and their upstream on the distance function10, 12. The final result depends on the quality of the distance function which has been used. The result is particularly coarse with the hexagonal distance function. The use of an euclidean distance function yields a beautiful skeleton, once some subtle interactions with the grid have been solved.
