Distance Transform Functions

This section describes the distance transform functions.
Distance transform is used for calculating the distance to an object. The input is an image with feature and non-feature pixels. The function labels every non-feature pixel in the output image with a distance to the closest feature pixel. Feature pixels are marked with zero.
Distance transform is used for a wide variety of subjects including skeleton finding and shape analysis.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
