Fig. 6.2 Two types of structuring elements at different sizes
Level 1: Hit and Fit
The structuring element is placed on top of the image as was the case for the kernels
in the previous chapter. The center of the structuring element is placed at the position
of the pixel in focus and it is the value of this pixel that will be calculated by applying
the structuring element. After having placed the structuring element we can apply
one of two methods: Hit or Fit.
