Yuriy Mishchenko Papers:
This paper describes a fast line scan algorithm for calculations of discrete Euclidean
distance transform in dimensions three or higher, also available from Matlab Central as function "bwdistsc".
Implemented in Matlab as a plain script,
described algorithm outperforms standard compiled
Matlab's Image Processing Toolbox's function
"bwdist" in terms of the calculation time by a factor of two.
Described implementation also allows processing data of much larger size
and calculations of the Euclidean distance transform
with the data having anisotropic pixel dimensions (aspect ratio). Full text
