I have used segmentation and labelling techniques to assign each object within an image a unigue number. For example, the sky will be given label 1, a tree may be given label 2, a person label 3, the ground label 4, and so on...
What I would like to do now is grab all the labels directly neighboring a specific object. For example, if I select the object of interest as label 3 (the person), I want to end up with a list of all the objects that the person directly neighbors. This would be the sky, and the ground (labels 1 and 4), but not the tree (label 2) as this is separated from the person.
Does anyone know of any good efficient methods for achieving this?
Thanks in advance!
