Digital Straight Line Segments
December 1974 (vol. 23 no. 12)
pp. 1264-1269
A. Rosenfeld, Computer Science Center, University of Maryland
It is shown that a digital arc S is the digitization of a straight line segment if and only if it has the "chord property:" the line segment joining any two points of S lies everywhere within distance 1 of S. This result is used to derive several regularity properties of digitizations of straight line segments.
Index Terms:
Digital pictures, digital straight lines.
