The Recursive Hierarchical Image Segmentation (RHSEG) software package integrated with GeoHub release version 1.59
Version 1.0 - published on 12 Aug 2015
This tool is closed source.
RHSeg is a recursive approximation of HSeg. RHSeg is implemented in a software package that can optionally utilize parallel computing for increased processing speed.
HSWO is an implementation of the hierarchical step-wise region growing approach to image segmentation. The HSeg algorithm is an augmentation of HSWO which (i) provides for the merging of non-adjacent regions (effectively classifying groups of connected region objects into spatially disjoint region classes), and (ii) provides approaches for selecting region growing iterations from which segmentation results are saved to form a segmentation hierarchy.
