I have a segmented network from an image and I would like to measure the thickness of the edges at different locations. As one method, I am trying to fit circles inside the edges boundaries and then measure their diameters. I am having difficulties fitting the circles inside the boundary. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Do you have other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Here is a sample image. I want to measure the thickness of the white parts.

You can try to use next algorithm: 1. Use FindContours to your image. 2. Divide contour to small segments (e.g. 5px). 3. Use equation of line and her perpendicular from analytical geometry: Ax+Bx=0 between segement and points from contour (in code you can use abs(Ax+Bx) < th (th some threshold e.g. 0.5,1.0...).

I use similar algorithm for calculating wire thickness from video, see screenshot . image description
