ABSTRACT A new sequential thinning algorithm, which uses both flag map and bitmap simultaneously to decide if a boundary pixel can be deleted, as well as the incorporation of smoothing templates to smooth the final skeleton, is proposed in this paper. Three performance measurements are proposed for an objective evaluation of this novel algorithm against a set of well established techniques. Extensive result comparison and analysis are presented in this paper for discussion.
