Another new Scorpion Tool Component – STC – is STC-0034-PolygonFilter2D.
As a life long Genesis fan – the title is a tribute to them and their album “Trick of a Tail” – listen to the title-song at You Tube
We will present the component in brief in a practical example measuring the width of a fish tail. This is a challenging task working with living material.
STC-0034-PolygonFilter2D Configuration Dialog
The component performs the following functions in arbitrary order on a path or closed path:
- gaussian filter
- path resampling
- simply – remove points on straight lines
- median filter
- intensity filter
- path filter
- fft filter
- tangent angle filter
- box clipping
The component has extensive and easy to use visualization that adds value to the processing function – one can see what is going on – one can experiment and find out what is working with ease.
Measuring Fish Tail Width
The image below shows the fish tail processed by STC-0034-PolygonFilter2D. with input from a blob after color segmentation.
The next images shows the STC-0034-PolygonFilter2D output is processed by STC-0056-MakePaths2D and the distance is calculated by STC-0001-MinimumPolygonToPolygonDistance
