Simple Article on Segmentation Types and Its Application

Authors(2) :-A. Elakkiya, R. Neela

Image segmentation is one of the most essential image processing step to discriminate various objects in the image, it usually assist as the pre-processing step before image feature extraction, image pattern recognition and image compression. The goal of image segmentation is to rationalize and change the depiction of an image into something which is very important and easy to examine. This paper focuses on study of different image segmentation types, applications and analysis which is used for advanced techniques. Then we talked about different foundation involved in image segmentation and find the gap between them which needs to be linked so as to refine the image segmentation efficiency and performance.
