Skeletonization Software

Skeletonization Software (2D) is a software package contains programs which compute robust Euclidean skeletons from 2-D binary images (or, optionally, from user-defined contour data). Features include:

  • Supports several image formats including GIF, TIFF, Sun Rasterfile, and JPEG.
  • Alternatively, object boundaries can be input as lists of (x,y) coordinates.
  • Computes Voronoi skeletons: truly Euclidean metric, choice between different pruning methods.
  • Most recent developments such as automatic pruning and hierarchic organization of skeleton components (Skeleton Pyramid) are included.
  • Compilation of skeletons into a flexible data structure (plus corresponding file format). A parser program for loading data back from file is provided.
  • The package contains simple X Windows visualization routines for skeleton data. Optionally, data can be converted into a Postscript file readable by 'idraw', the InterViews drawing editor.
  • (Limited) support for AVS and KHOROS.
