Petroglyph Detection

Development of automated methods to segment rock images with petroglyphs.

With the advances of digital photography, the number of high quality images of rock panels containing petroglyphs grows steadily. Different time-consuming manual methods to determine and document the exact shapes and spatial locations of petroglyphs on a panel have been carried out over decades. We aim at automated methods to segment rock images with petroglyphs.
