Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a multi-scale image segmentation algorithm based on mean shift, a simple iterative procedure that shifts each data point to the average of data points in its neighborhood, which has been proven to be a mode-seeking process on a surface constructed with a "shadow" kernel. In the presented algorithm, not only the color features, but also the space relationship of each pixel are considered in multiple scales, thus getting a more reasonable clustering sequence, furthermore, center candidates are validated by contour map. Experimental examples are illustrated and compared to show that the approach is effective not only in segmentation, but also in denoising.
