Description

Transforms the image so that any pixel that is not a regional maxima is set to the minimum value for the pixel type. Pixels that are regional maxima retain their value.

Regional maxima are flat zones surrounded by pixels of lower value. A completely flat image will be marked as a regional maxima by this filter.
