Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the results of the extension of the mathematical morphology to color images by treating multi-channel data as vectors. The approach presented here uses the HSI and related color spaces (intuitives). A modification of the lexicographical order for vectorial processing is developed. The importance of this new method lies on automatic selection of elements of the HSI and related color spaces to form an ordering structure. The achievement of the algorithm is realized through the introduction of a weight factor to reduce the high preference of the first component of the classic lexicographical order. Experimental results demonstrate the improvement of this new method.
