Abstract

See full text

One or more images of an object are obtained. These are then warped onto the object. The object may be divided into sites where sites are overlapping circular regions of the object. For each site, a neighborhood graph may be created where each site is a node in the graph and each pair of sites with overlapping regions is connected by an edge. A list of covers of each site may be created where the list contains all the possible labels for that node. Each image that covers part of the site may be reviewed including all possible shifts up to some number of pixels. A cost may be assigned to each cover and costs for each of the covers may be calculated. The cover with the lowest cost may be selected. If the costs are too high, the resolution may be lowered, one or more possible covers may be selected and then the analysis may be performed using the selected covers at a higher resolution.
