Paper Abstract

In previous work, an hierarchical system for shape classification based on morphological techniques was developed. A major concern, however, was the lack of a fast and accurate morphological algorithm for calculating the convex hull of an object, an important step in the classification process. Presented here are an overview of the classification system to date and several different convex hull algorithms designed to overcome these problems.
