PAMI '99

AUTOMATED B-SPLINE CURVE REPRESENTATION INCORPORATING MDL AND ERROR-MINIMIZING CONTROL POINT INSERTION STRATEGIES

Tat-Jen Cham and Roberto Cipolla

Dec 1997

The main issues of developing an automatic and reliable scheme for spline-fitting are discussed and addressed in this paper, which are not fully covered in previous papers or algorithms. The proposed method incorporates B-spline active contours, the minimum description length (MDL) principle, and a novel control point insertion strategy based on maximizing the Potential for Energy-Reduction Maximisation (PERM). A comparison of test results show that it outperforms one of the best existing methods.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
