Feret diameter

asked 2017-10-11 15:28:18 -0500


I know there is no already implemented function for calculating Feret diameter in OpenCV.

Can i implement it for OpenCV and send it as pull request?

Is there anyone from OpenCV dev team, who is interested in it?

imho, minAreaRect is already covering this

You can indeed submit it as a pull-request, but make sure it does something more than already exists in functions like boundingRect. That calculates the X and Y Feret diameter.

Of course, the Contribution Guidelines are here, with more details about what to do.

It is important to notice that minAreaRect() won't return the feret diameter. It is similar but not equal. For more details: gravatar ( 2018-11-06 00:11:32 -0500 )edit
