Short DescriptionThis is an icy package that encapsulates tools to design and implement parametric active contours. The package provides fast 2D and 3D filters for image preprocessing, and a framework to create and evolve snakes defined by a set of control points.
Active contours constitute a computationally attractive framework for image segmentation.
