Introduction

Image segmentation is "the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple segments." (Wikipedia)

It is typically used to locate objects and boundaries.

More precisely, image segmentation is the process of assigning a label to every pixel in an image such that pixels with the same label share certain visual characteristics.

For a list of Fiji plugins which perform image segmentation, see: Category:Segmentation.
