The use of morphological scale-spaces has become a popular tool for the multiscale analysis of grey-scale images. However, in common with other morphological techniques, their extension to color and other multichannel images is not straightforward because of the absence of an unambiguous ordering. This chapter describes an approach to the development of color morphological scale-spaces using area openings and closings based on the identification and processing of vector extrema. The properties, development and implementation of the resulting color area morphology scale-spaces are described and studies of their application to color image segmentation and noise reduction are presented.
