Abstract: Image segmentation is a process to classify image pixels into different classes according to some pre-defined criterion. An entropy based image segmentation method is proposed to segment a gray-scale image. The method starts with an arbitrary template. An index called Gray-scale Image Entropy (GIE) is employed to measure the degree of resemblance between the template and the true scene that gives rise to the gray-scale image. The classification status of the edge pixels in the template is modified in such a way as to maximize the GIE. By repeatedly processing all the edge pixels until a termination condition is met, the template would be changed to a configuration that closely resembles the true scene. This optimum template (in an entropy sense) is taken to be the desired segmented image. Investigation results from simulation study and the segmentation of practical images demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method
