Canny edge detection

Canny edge detection: OpenCV for Python Developers
Canny edge detection: OpenCV for Python Developers

Canny edge detection is a useful algorithm commonly used as a preprocessor for finding contours and other object detection methods. It works by finding and accentuating the edges within an image. The result can be drawn into a binary image with multiple continuous line sets. While these lines define edges and not necessarily enclosed areas, it happens to still be a useful preprocessor to then run contours against the output of canny edges.
