Interactive object contour extraction for shape modeling

Adamek, Tomasz and O'Connor, Noel E. orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-4033-9135 (2006) Interactive object contour extraction for shape modeling. In: 1st International Workshop on Shapes and Semantics, 17 June 2006, Matsushima, Japan.

In this paper we present a semi-automatic segmentation approach suitable for extracting object contours as a precursor to 2D shape modeling. The approach is a modified and extended version of an existing state-of-the-art approach based on the concept of a Binary Partition Tree (BPT) [1]. The resulting segmentation tool facilitates quick and easy extraction of an object’s contour via a small amount of user interaction that is easy to perform, even in complicated scenes. Illustrative segmentation results are presented and the usefulness of the approach in generating object shape models is discussed.
