Polygonal meshes of superpixels for image over-segmentation based on topological skeletonsMS16

We consider the problem of splitting an image into a small number of convex polygons with vertices at subpixel resolution. Edges of resulting superpixels can have any direction and should adhere well to object boundaries. We introduce a Convex Constrained Mesh that accepts any straight line segments (or a straight-line graph based on a topological persistence) and outputs a complete mesh of convex polygons without small angles and with approximation guarantees for the given lines.
