An Efficient Parallel Binary Image Thinning Algorithm | Original Article

Moumita Sarkar*, in Anusandhan | Technology & Management


Thinning plays very vital role in image processing applications. Thinning basically reduce a thick digital object into a thin skeleton. In this paper we propose a new parallel image thinning algorithm for binary image thinning. The proposed algorithm is efficient enough to produce one pixel width skeleton for all kind of image structures with on loss of connectivity and no extra pixels.
