Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetCirclesByRelativeIntensity
Get circles with relative intensity higher then specified value.
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.

Extension Methods
  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodHasMethod
Checks whether an object implements a method with the given name.
(Defined by ExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension MethodIsEqual
Compares two objects for equality, performing an elementwise comparison if the elements are vectors or matrices.

Remarks

The class implements Hough circle transformation, which allows to detect circles of specified radius in an image.

The class accepts binary images for processing, which are represented by 8 bpp grayscale images. All black pixels (0 pixel's value) are treated as background, but pixels with different value are treated as circles' pixels.

Sample usage:

HoughCircleTransformation circleTransform = new HoughCircleTransformation( 35 );
// apply Hough circle transform
circleTransform.ProcessImage( sourceImage );
Bitmap houghCirlceImage = circleTransform.ToBitmap( );
// get circles using relative intensity
HoughCircle[] circles = circleTransform.GetCirclesByRelativeIntensity( 0.5 );

foreach ( HoughCircle circle in circles )
{
    // ...
}
