Paper Abstract

This paper describes an efficient algorithm for color image segmentation based on a multiresolution application of a wavelet transform and watershed segmentation algorithm. The procedure toward complete segmentation consists of four steps: pyramid representation, image segmentation, region projection and region merging. First, pyramid representation creates multiresolution images using a wavelet transform. Second, image segmentation segments the lowest-resolution image of the pyramid using a watershed segmentation algorithm. Third, the segmented low-resolution image with label is projected into a full-resolution image (original image) by inverse wavelet transform. Finally, region merging merges the segmented regions using fuzzy similarity. Experimental results of the presented method can be applied to the segmentation of noise or degraded images as well as reduce over-segmentation.
