Name

dilation - Calculate the dilated image (for both binary and graylevel image).

Usage

output = dilation(input, mask, morphtype = "morph_type")

Input

input
The first input image
mask
The second input image used as the mask (default: image of size 3^n filled with ones).
  • The size of the mask has to be odd so that the center of mask can be well defined.
  • The size of the mask should be smaller than the size of the first input image.
morph_type
Type of the dilation
  • BINARY is for binary dilation;
  • GRAYLEVEL is for graylevel dilation.

Output

output
dilated image

Method

  1. For dilation binary, the output image is defined as the Minkowski addition of the two input images $A\oplusB={t\inZ^2; t=a+b, a\inA, b\inB}$
  2. For dilation graylevel, the output image is defined as $A\oplusB=\max[A(x+i,y+j)+B(i,j)]$
