Description: Report
Abstract: An edge detection experiment using the MARR operator was conducted at ETL to determine if the operator could be used in an interactive manner to extract well-defined edges from noisy pictures. Three binary image processing functions, namely, line thinning, line thickening and clutter removal were found to be useful aids in the interactive process. The results of the experiment demonstrate that the MARR operator was not biased and performed as well as the Prewitt and Haralick operators, all of which is contrary to an experiment conducted by Haralick where the operator was used incorrectly.
