Abstract

The authors briefly describe their new morphological operators of »boundary erosion region dilation (BERD)» and »boundary dilation region erosion (BDRE)». The paper covers definitions, properties, and some of the applications of these operators. BERD and BDRE operations may be used to approximately perform the job of various common morphological filtering operations with lesser computational times. BERD and BDRE operations with 2-D structuring elements may be used to construct robust connectivity preserving filters. Unlike commonly used median closing and opening operators/sup 1,5,6/, these filters do not destroy thin regions which rapidly change their direction or the regions which can not be probed by straight lines in limited directions. They have used these connectivity preserving filters for removing speckle noise from SAR images while retaining thin regions and fine details of regions boundaries.
