Marker Based Watershed Recipe

Recipe for Marker Based Watershed as in the Segmentation Editor


The Segmentation Editor offers a functionality to apply a marker-based watershed leading to connected regions.

This proposed recipe offers the same functionality in the Project View, computing the gradient image automatically and expanding the labels so the output regions are connected. The recipe offers the option to use either the fast or repeatable mode for the Marker Based Watershed step.

Note: there might be very minor differences of results compared to the Segmentation Editor tool, especially when using the 'fast' mode of the recipe.

The recipe can be executed, or edited, through the 'Image Volume Processing' module. The first input 'Data' is expected to be the grayscale image, whereas the markers image should be provided as secondary input.
