Image processing is "the analysis, manipulation and restoration of digitized images and videos".

The results listed here were produced during my stay at the "Image Processing and Interpretation" (IPI) research group, part of the "Telecommunications and Information Processing" (TELIN) department, part of Ghent University.

Connected Components

I developed an extremely efficient algorithm to calculate the connected components in a binary image.
I wrote about this technique in the article "Fast and Memory Efficient 2D Connected Components Using Linked Lists of Line Segments" which has been published in the journal "IEEE Transactions on Image Processing".
Test executables of both this 2D and a 3D version can be downloaded below.
