Understanding mathematical morphology

Originally developed in 1967 by Georges Matheron and Jean Serra at the Ecole des Mines de Paris, mathematical morphology is based on mathematical concepts from set theory. Professor Robert Fisher and his colleagues at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh have developed the Hypermedia Image Processing Reference--a set of interactive computer-based materials for image processing and machine vision.

Originally developed in 1967 by Georges Matheron and Jean Serra at the Ecole des Mines de Paris, mathematical morphology is based on mathematical concepts from set theory and uses a number of operators that are useful for edge detection, noise removal, image enhancement, and image segmentation. To aid the understanding of such concepts, professor Robert Fisher and his colleagues at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh have developed the Hypermedia Image Processing Reference (homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/rbf/HIPR2/hipr_top.htm)--a set of interactive computer-based materials for image processing and machine vision. Included among them is an interactive demonstration of mathematical morphology.
