ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present a method for detecting and labeling the edge structures in digital gray-scale images in two distinct stages: First, a variant of the cubic facet model is applied to detect the location, orientation and curvature of the putative edge points. Next, a relaxation labeling network is used to reinforce meaningful edge structures and suppress noisy edges. Each node label of this network is a 3D vector parameterizing the orientation and curvature information of the corresponding edge point. A hysterisis step in the relaxation process maximizes connected contours. For certain types of images, prefiltering by adaptive smoothing improves robustness against noise and spatial blurring.</p>
