ImageLines

ImageLines[image]
finds line segments in image and returns the coordinates of their endpoints.
ImageLines
uses the threshold t for selecting image lines.
ImageLines
uses the parameter d to control the distinctness of the detected lines.
  • ImageLines returns a list of line segments where the are expressed in the standard image coordinates .
  • ImageLines finds lines in the image whose normalized strength is larger than the specified threshold t.
  • In ImageLines, the parameter d controls how close lines are suppressed. If the value is set to zero, all detected lines are returned. With d set to , only the strongest line may be returned.
  • By default, ImageLines computes lines based on the Hough transform of the image, using the setting Method.
  • Lines are detected by iteratively selecting the strongest peaks in the Hough transform. Using the distinctness parameter, peaks that are within a rectangular range from the already selected peaks are excluded from the set of line candidates.
  • With Method, lines are detected using random sampling. For each sampling, pixels that are within a distance specified by the distinctness parameter d are used for computing the strength of the line. The pixels on the selected line are not used in the following iterations.
  • By default, ImageLines returns lines that span from border to border. With a setting True, detected lines may be divided into smaller segments.
