VTK Examples Baseline Images TestImageThreshold.png

The image on the left is the input image and the image on the right is the thresholded version.

Download and Build ImageThreshold

Click here to download ImageThreshold. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball ImageThreshold.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ImageThreshold/build 
  • If VTK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:
cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ImageThreshold

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
