Paper Abstract

The aim of the edge thinning process is to remove the inherent edge broadness in gradient images while retaining edge continuity of the image. Such a process is required so that a useful silhouette of the target can be generated for target classification purposes. This paper compares the results from three candidate edge thinning algorithms: nonmaximum sup-pression technique by D. Miligram and A. Rosenfeld, modified USC thinning algorithm, and Reeves' algorithm. The results are compared subjectively and in terms of the number of computations required for their implementation.*
