Name Type Range Default Description
inImageAvlNet.ImageInput image to fit arc to.
inFittingMapAvlNet.ArcFittingMapInput fitting map.
inRidgeScanParamsAvlNet.RidgeScanParamsParameters controlling the ridge extraction process.
inRidgeSelectionAvlNet.Selectionavl::Selection::BestSelection mode of ridges. Default value: avl::Selection::Best.
inLocalBlindnessAvlNet.LocalBlindness?Defines conditions in which weaker ridges can be detected in the vicinity of stronger ridges. Default value: atl::NIL.
inMaxIncompletenessfloat<0.0f, 0.999f>0.1fMaximal fraction of ridge points not found. Default value: 0.1f.
inFittingMethodAvlNet.CircleFittingMethodAlgebraicTaubinMethod used to fit an arc. Default value: AlgebraicTaubin.
inOutlierSuppressionAvlNet.MEstimator?Selects a method for ignoring incorrectly detected points. Default value: atl::NIL.
outArcAvlNet.Arc2D?Fitted arc or nothing if the fitting fails.
outRidgesSystem.Collections.Generic.IList<AvlNet.Ridge1D?>Found ridges.
outDeviationProfileAvlNet.INullable<AvlNet.Profile>Profile of distances between the actual arc points and the corresponding reference arc points. This parameter cannot be null.
outInliersSystem.Collections.Generic.IList<AvlNet.Point2D>Points matching the fitting Arc.
diagBrightnessProfilesSystem.Collections.Generic.IList<AvlNet.Profile>Extracted image profiles.
diagResponseProfilesSystem.Collections.Generic.IList<AvlNet.Profile>Profiles of the ridge operator response.


The operation tries to fit a given arc to ridges present in the inImage image. Internally, it performs a series of scans with the ScanSingleRidge filter using inFittingMap previously generated from the object being fitted. The found points are then used to determine the actual position of the arc in the image. Only inMaxIncompleteness fraction of these scans may fail. If the fitting according to the given parameters is not possible, outArc is set to Nil.
