A hybrid segmentation method has been developed which integrates edge detection and region growing in order to overcome their respective weaknesses. The method consists of the following stages: (i) filtering; (ii) edge detection and following; (iii) edge fragment linking; (iv) region growing. Comparative results are shown of a non-segmented Landsat-TM scene and its segmented counterpart classified by an artificial neural network.
