Watershed segmentation algorithm

Watershed segmentation algorithm

A Watershed segmentation algorithm is an algorithm which utilizes watershed segmentation to segment images.

# Invert and filter the data
# Segment the data.
# Measure the attributes of each region.
# Select regions based on their attributes.
# Reiterate the algorithm (If necessarily).


Watershed segmentation has countless uses. The list provided here is just an example of functions, and is by no means exhaustive.
