A New Image Binarization Technique Using Iterative Partitioning
- 725 Downloads
In this chapter, a new technique for image binarization is presented and discussed intensively. The worked-out algorithm is mainly based on the idea of iterative partitioning. The authors show how this approach outperforms the existing and widely used binarization methods in terms of accuracy. The algorithm is introduced with its computer implementation to show how it performs in practice.
