Waterball-iterative watershed algorithm with reduced oversegmentation

Michał Świercz , Marcin Iwanowski

Abstract

In this paper we present a new approach to watershed algorithm for segmentation of digital grey-scale images. The approach is derived from rainfall-type watershed methods, but utilises a different method of path tracing and iterative gradient image preparation to reduce oversegmentation and yield better results in object extraction. Sample results are discussed, with emphasis on their global correctness and practical applications.
