GeodesicErosion[marker, mask]
gives the fixed point of the geodesic erosion of the image marker constrained by the image mask.
  • GeodesicErosion[marker, mask] effectively starts with marker, then repeatedly erodes it, masking with mask, until the result no longer changes.
  • GeodesicErosion[marker, mask, n] iterates the erosion process at most n times.
  • If multiple image channels are present, GeodesicErosion operates on each of them separately.
