<p><b>Abstract</b>—In this paper we suggest a variant of a binary image representation based on run length encoding. This variant allows to build a "graph representation" which turns convenient for a number of computing tasks like component labeling, computation of Euler number, diameter, convex hull and the detection of local extrema and multiple points. A running application in the raster-to-vector conversion of digital maps is finally provided.</p>
