Edge detection MATLAB source code

This page covers matlab code for edge detection in the figure provided as input

Edge Detection Methods Basics

•  Edges are those places in an image that correspond to object boundaries. Edges are pixels where image brightness changes abruptly
•  An edge is a property attached to an individual pixel and is calculated from the image function behavior in a neighborhood of the pixel.
•  It is a vector variable (magnitude of the gradient, direction of an edge) .

Edge detection basics

Edge Detection:
•  Edge information in an image is found by looking at the relationship a pixel has with its neighborhoods.
•  If a pixel's gray-level value is similar to those around it, there is probably not an edge at that point.
•  If a pixel's has neighbors with widely varying gray levels, it may present an edge point.
