Abstract

We propose an algorithm that reconstructs the central layer of thick contours, and maps it onto the unit interval. We base our algorithm on an active contour model and we analyze its behavior both in the space and frequency domain. We prove conditions on the parameters of the formulation that guarantee a good solution and we demonstrate the importance of the choice of these parameters through a series of experiments.
