Characterizing inter-feature distances in digital images using automatic image analysis systems presents problems not found when quantifying the morphology of the features themselves. In particular, the problems of segmenting a contiguous background into local regions for measurement and clarifying the concepts of near and neighboring are paramount to the use of automatic image analyzers for these measurements. These problems are explored, and several solutions based on mathematical morphology are explained.
