Introducing the Dahu Pseudo-Distance

Abstract : The minimum barrier (MB) distance is defined as the minimal interval of gray-level values in an image along a path between two points, where the image is considered as a vertex-valued graph. Yet this definition does not fit with the interpretation of an image as an elevation map, i.e. a somehow continuous landscape. In this paper, based on the discrete set-valued continuity setting, we present a new discrete definition for this distance, which is compatible with this interpretation, while being free from digital topology issues. Amazingly, we show that the proposed distance is related to the morphological tree of shapes, which in addition allows for a fast and exact computation of this distance. That contrasts with the classical definition of the MB distance, where its fast computation is only an approximation.
