Description

binary closing by reconstruction of an image.

This filter removes small (i.e., smaller than the structuring element) holes in the image. It is defined as: Closing(f) = ReconstructionByErosion(Dilation(f)).

The structuring element is assumed to be composed of binary values (zero or one). Only elements of the structuring element having values > 0 are candidates for affecting the center pixel.
