Requires: ImageJ 1.31p or later, which adds the ability to package plugins in JAR files Source: Contained in Mixture_Modeling.jar, which can be opened using a ZIP utility Installation: Download Mixture_Modeling.jar to the plugins folder, or subfolder, restart ImageJ, and there will be a new Plugins/Filters/Mixture Modeling... command. Description: This algorithm separates the histogram of an image into two classes using a Gaussian model. It then calculates the image threshold as the intersection of these two Gaussians. This thresholding technique has the advantage of finding a threshold that is in certain cases closer to real world data. The Gaussian parameters can also be used to caracterise the two regions obtained.
The plugin returns a histogram with the two Gaussians, the parameters obtained (average, standard deviation, threshold) and the thresholded image.
The image on the left represents trees viewed on a Digital Elevation Model. This data can be quite well modeled by two Gaussians and the obtained threshold is satisfactory.
