Jean-Christophe Baillie Certainty Color Maps Compared to Histograms. February 2002.

Sony CSL authors: Jean-Christophe Baillie


We present a new segmentation algorithm based on probabilistic histograms and introduce certainty calculus and certainty color maps to solve the difficult problem o f histogram separation. This new method is then compared to simple histogram and normalized histogram techniques. Using a set of experiments designed to measure the quality of segmentation, we have shown that certainty color maps is a much more accurate approach than histograms, especially when histogram separation in necessary.
