Although techniques based on binary image regions have been used for a very long time, they still play a major role in many practical image processing applications today because of their simplicity and efficiency. To obtain a binary image, the first and perhaps most critical step is to convert the initial grayscale (or color) image to a binary image, in most cases by performing some form of thresholding operation, as described in Chapter 4, Sec. 4.1.4.
