Positional Connected Component Labeling Algorithm

Received Date:01 February 2014, Accepted Date:22 February 2014, Published Date:03 March 2014


This paper presents a new positional connected component labeling algorithm to label the connected component and to give the number of components present in the binary image. The algorithm is based on the position value of the foreground pixel of the image. All the connected components are identified by the algorithm and are assigned by a new label or the same label of their adjacent component. Experiments are conducted by applying proper threshold technique on various images from the datasets collected and tagged by the ICDAR Robust Reading Dataset Collection Team. It is observed that the proposed method finds the entire connected components in the image.
