What is the algorithm behind de findblobs function?
I need to explain in a paper why i used this function.
Thanks.

http://help.simplecv.org/question/2121/algorithm-behind-blob-detection/?answer=2143#post-id-2143Blob is actually a group information
In this case the information being pixels or color values
The Blob algorithm has to do with edge detection and there is an actual formula pertaining to that.
