27 April 2008 4 27 April 2008 4 1999-2007 by Richard Alan Peters II Notation and Image Definitions An image is a mapping, I, from a set, S P , of pixel coordinates to a set, G , of values such that for every coordinate vector, p = ( r , c ) in S P , there is a value I( p ) drawn from G . S P is also called the image plane . A binary image has only 2 values. That is, G = { v fg , v bg }, where v fg , is called the foreground value and v bg is called the background value. Often, the foreground value is v fg = 0, and the background is v bg = – . Other possibilities are { v fg , v bg } = {0, }, {0,1}, {1,0}, {0,255}, and {255,0}. In this lecture we assume that { v fg , v bg } = { 255, 0 }, although the fg is often displayed in different colors for contrast.

Similarly, the background is {} ( ) ( ) {} Pf g FG I I , , I( ) , rc S v == = pp p Pb g BG I I , , I( ) . S v == = = p Note that {} {} I I BG I FG = = I BG I FG and ∅, and that C I FG I BG = and . I BG I FG C = The background is the complement of the foreground and vice-versa.

The complement of the support is, therefore, the set of background pixel locations within the image plane. The support of a binary image, I, is C Pb supp I ( , ) I( ) . g S v =
