Paper Abstract

We discuss some basic problems encountered when we assemble the results of image analysis on architectures with coarse grain parallelism. Emphasis is placed on strategies that minimize distortions during the recombination of independently processed image tiles. A seaming algorithm is presented which merges the results of mean difference or max-min region based split-and-merge segmentations of individual tiles. Benchmarks obtained on a Sequent B/21 multiprocessor are given to illustrate the performance of the algorithm.
