<p>A method that measures the distance between extended objects of nonregular shape is presented. The distance measure is an average of a set of minimal point-to-point distances between the borders of the objects. The set of points is collected with a well-defined criterion based on processing of distance values on a connected medial axis formed between the objects.</p>
