Hey guys, im trying to do skeletonization for this image using python 3.6.3 opencv.

image description

I'm hoping to use Guo-hall or Zhang-Suen thinning algorithms to skeletonize this image. Please advice me for python(3.6.3) opencv.

Which version of opencv? And do you have the contrib modules installed?

Very simple!

from skimage.morphology import skeletonize

But please pay attention to this, the input parameter should be either 0 or 1, so you should do it like this:

ske = (skeletonize(thr_img//255) * 255).astype(np.uint8)

You can use thinning algorithm in ximgproc. You will have to compile opencv_extra sync with opencv

you will need opencv_contrib package or you have to build opencv and opencv_contrib and install in your python version

Either the opencv_contrib package from your package manager, or you need to follow the appropriate tutorial HERE. You also need to include the opencv_contrib package in the build. When you download the source, there's a README file that explains how to do it, linked HERE.
