The proposed representation is similar to the primal sketch idea suggested by Marr (1976, 1982), in the sense that it is a two-dimensional representation of the significant grey-level structures in the image. It is also computed under extremely weak assumptions. In addition, it is a region-based, not an edge-based representation, and it is more qualitative,without strong assumptions about the shapes of the primitives. It consists of blobs (extremum regions) at multiple scales in scale-space, and allows for
  • automatic detection of salient (stable) scales, if they exist

  • ranking of blob-like structures in order of significance, and

  • generation of hypotheses for grouping and segmentation.
