How to fill a black area with circles?
2 views (last 30 days)
I'm using imfindcircles() of the Image Processing Toolbox to scan a simple rectangular image for black circles. When the dots are clumped, a region becomes black and imfindcircles() doesn't identify any circles. I've attached an example image and scan.
I'd like to flood/fill that region with circles anyway but am unsure how to proceed. The circles can overlap, or not, either is fine.
A script using the attached input file, resulting in the attached output file.
function centers = dots_center(image,pixeldiameter,sensitivity)
[centers,radii] = imfindcircles(image,[pixeldiameter pixeldiameter],'ObjectPolarity','dark','Sensitivity',sensitivity)
h = viscircles(centers,radii);

The area which you are concerned about is just a accumulation of black pixels. From the image there is no way to find the exact circles by which the black area is created unless you find a method with which the original image is created. But given only the image you won't be able to get fill the black region with circles.
