How to get the raw edge data in an image

Hey there -

I'm trying to get the edges in an image, and I'm using image.edges() with great success. The problem is that this returns an image, and I'd rather find a way to get each edge individually (with the eventual goal of obtaining a list containing groups of location points that define an edge).

I've thought about playing with findBlobs, but that makes it too slow for my application.

Is there an easy way to do this in SimpleCV?

Here's what I normally do when I want to work with sets of points. It may or may not suit your application

eimg = img.edges()
# ask numpy where in our gray image is white
x,y = np.where(eimg.getGrayNumpy() > 128) 
# make the points into a list of tuples
pts = zip(x,y)
