Paper Abstract

Mathematical Morphology is a general theory that studies the decompositions of mappings between complete lattices in terms of some families of simple mappings: dilations, erosions, anti-dilations and anti-erosions. Nowadays, this theory is largely used in Image Processing and Computer Vision to extract information from images. The KHOROS system is an open and general environment for Image Processing and Visualization that has become very popular. One of the main characteristics of KHOROS is its flexibility, since it runs out on standard machines, supports several standard data formats, uses a visual programming language, and has tools to help the user to build and install his own programs. A set of new programs can be organized as a subsystem, called Toolbox. This paper presents a fast and comprehensive Mathematical Morphology Toolbox for the KHOROS system, that deals with binary, gray- scale and multiple band images. Each program has specialized algorithms for binary and gray- scale images, that are chosen automatically according to the input data. These implemented algorithms running on current general purpose workstations are as fast as the equivalent ones running on specialized hardware with 1986 technology.
