Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to: understand and explain basic problems that arise after object digitization and object representation using a grid of points (e.g., in the form of a digital image); measure geometric and topological properties of digital objects (e.g., length, area, perimeter, volume, Euler characteristic, and the number of holes); compare digital metrics; efficiently implement the key algorithms of digital geometry (e.g., region labeling, border tracing, and distance map computation); identify the fundamentals of the discussed methods.
