ThresholdToRegion_Dynamic


Header:AVL.h
Namespace:avl

Thresholds an image relatively to the average pixel value in a local rectangular neighborhood.

Syntax

C++
C#
 
void avl::ThresholdToRegion_Dynamic
(
	const avl::Image& inImage,
	atl::Optional<const avl::Region&> inRoi,
	atl::Optional<const avl::Region&> inSourceRoi,
	int inRadiusX,
	atl::Optional<int> inRadiusY,
	atl::Optional<float> inMinRelativeValue,
	atl::Optional<float> inMaxRelativeValue,
	float inHysteresis,
	avl::Region& outRegion,
	avl::Image& diagBaseImage
)

Parameters

Name Type Range Default Description
inImage const Image& Input image
inRoi Optional<const Region&> NIL Region in which pixels are written
inSourceRoi Optional<const Region&> NIL Region from which pixels are read
inRadiusX int 0 - 65535 5 Horizontal radius of internal mean blur
inRadiusY Optional<int> 0 - 65535 NIL Vertical radius of internal mean blur (Auto = inRadiusX)
inMinRelativeValue Optional<float> 5.0f Minimum relative value of a pixel that is considered foreground (Auto = -INF)
inMaxRelativeValue Optional<float> NIL Maximum relative value of a pixel that is considered foreground (Auto = +INF)
inHysteresis float 0.0 - 0.0f Defines how much the threshold criteria are lowered for pixels neighboring with other foreground pixels
outRegion Region& Output region
diagBaseImage Image& Diagnostic blurred image.

Description

The operation is a cousin of ThresholdImage_Dynamic yet computes a region instead of an image. The resulting region contains only those pixels of the input image, which are brighter at least by inMinRelativeValue and at most by inMaxRelativeValue than the local average. If any of the parameters inMinRelativeValue, inMaxRelativeValue is not set, it is assumed to be, accordingly, -infinity or infinity.

Pixel neighbourhood used to compute the local average is a rectangle of dimensions (2 \cdot \text{\textbf{inRadiusX} }+1) \times (2 \cdot \text{\textbf{inRadiusY} }+1) centered at the pixel being processed.

In the multichannel images the operation uses an average of channel values in each pixel.

Hints

  • Define inMinRelativeValue to extract objects which are brighter than the neighborhood.
  • Define inMaxRelativeValue to extract objects which are darker than the neighborhood.
  • Increase inRadiusX (and optionally inRadiusY) to define a bigger neighborhood.

Examples

ThresholdToRegion_Dynamic performed on the sample image with inMinRelativeValue = 5.0, inMaxRelativeValue = auto.

Errors

List of possible exceptions:

Error type Description
DomainError inRoi exceeds image dimensions in ThresholdToRegion_Dynamic.
