What is the Shape of a Pixel?

Posted by Steve Eddins,

What is the shape of a pixel? At various times, I have a pixel as a square (often), a point (sometimes), or a rectangle (occasionally). I recall back in grad school doing some homework where we were treating pixels as hexagons.... read more >>

Minimum Feret Diameter 3

Posted by Steve Eddins,

Last time (if you can remember that long ago), I talked about how to find the maximum Feret diameter of a shape. The Feret diameter, sometimes called the caliper diameter, is illustrated by the diagram below. In a virtual sense, place the object to be measured inside the jaws of a caliper, with the caliper oriented at a specified angle. Close the jaws tightly on the object while maintaining that angle. The distance between the jaws is the Feret diameter at that angle.... read more >>
