Erosion and EDM Dilation=
Purpose: The standard binary erosion and dilation suffers from the artefact that under higher iteration cycles the binary structures get irregularly deformed (see image below, second column). The EDM based methods for erosion and dilation prevent these artifacts. The method is using thresholding on a 8-bit euclidean distance map of the original image to facilitate
the erosion or dilation.
How to: The number of
erosion/dilation cycled determines how many rows of pixels should be eliminated/added to the binary features.
only on 2D images, maintenance active
