Paper Abstract

A subjective analysis is performed on various classical, and order statistic-based color edge detectors. Order statistic edge detectors imply that image pixels within a specific region, are treated statistically such that outliers can be rejected from the general trends in the data. A different type of subjective rating system is employed here and the rationale behind its use is explained. The importance of subjective edge detection lies in the development of a color edge detector which can accurately simulate what is seen by humans.
