Local Thresholding (deprecated)

StreamableKNIME Image Types and Nodes version 1.8.3.202103170902 by University of Konstanz

The local thresholding is performed in an efficient way. If possible (depends on the chosen method) an integral image approach is used which is very fast.

Options

Thresholding method
The used thresholding Method: Mean, Median, Sauvola, MidGrey, Bernsen, Niblack. Mean, Niblack and Sauvola are implemented using the fast integral image approach.
Out of bounds strategy
Specifies which values the algorithm should use outside the image's bounds. Possible options are: Border (out of bounds value is always 0), Mirror_Single, Mirror_Double (virtually mirrors the image at its boundaries. Boundary pixels are either duplicated or not).
Parameters
Thresholding method dependent parameters. Window size specifies the size of the local region. Other parameters: Contrast threshold (needed for Bernsen), c (constant offset value, needed for Mean, Median, Niblack and MidGrey), k (needed for Niblack and Sauvola with different values) and r (needed for Sauvola).
Dimension Selection

This component allows the selection of dimensions of interest. If an algorithm cannot, as it only supports fewer dimensions than the number of dimensions of the image, or shouldnot, as one wants to run the algorithm only on subsets of the image, be applied on the complete image, the dimension selection can be used to define the plane/cube/hypercube on which the algorithm is applied. Example 1 with three dimensional Image (X,Y,Time): An algorithm cannot be applied to the complete image, as it only supports two dimensional images. If you select e.g. X,Y then the algorithm will be applied to all X,Y planes individually. Example 2 with three dimensional Image (X,Y,Time): The algorithm can be applied in two, three or even more dimensions. Select the dimensions to define your plane/cube/hypercube on which the algorithm will be applied.

Column Selection

Column Creation Mode

Mode how to handle the selected column. The processed column can be added to a new table, appended to the end of the table, or the old column can be replaced by the new result

Column Suffix
A suffix appended to the column name. If "Append" is not selected, it can be left empty.
Column Selection
Selection of the columns to be processed.

Input Ports

Icon
Images to threshold.

Output Ports

Icon
The thresholded images (as BitType images).

Views

Image Viewer
Another, possibly interactive, view on table cells. Displays the selected cells with their associated viewer if it exists. Available views are:
- Missing Value Viewer
-- An empty viewer that is shown when the input cell has no value to display.
- Histogram Viewer
-- This viewer shows the histogram of the currently selected image.
- Combined View
-- A viewer shown when the user selects an interval of rows and columns in the viewer. This viewer combines all images and labelings in the selected interval to one image by rendering them next to each other. Alternatively, the images and labelings can be layed over each other.
- Labeling View
-- View on a labeling/segmentation
- XML
-- XML tree
- BigDataViewer
-- A viewer shown when the user selects an interval of rows and columns in the viewer. This viewer combines all images and labelings in the selected interval to one image by rendering them next to each other. Alternatively, the images and labelings can be layed over each other.
- Image Viewer
-- This viewer renders the selected image-cell.
