Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present an image segmentation approach, which is based on the data fusion technique and divided into two steps. At first, we segment the image in a low-resolution to find the coarse contour of regions; then we use the fuzzy-c-means algorithm to process the image in a fine resolution to find its delicate characters. To avoid the large amount of calculation, the results of the first step is fused into the second step. Experimental results show that this technique is effective in improving the quality of segmentation and lessening the calculating time.
