1. Introduction.

Very fast edge detector (up to 60 fps depending on parameter settings) that achieves excellent accuracy. Can serve as input to any vision algorithm requiring high quality edge maps. Toolbox also includes the Edge Boxes object proposal generation method and fast superpixel code.

If you use the Structured Edge Detection Toolbox, we appreciate it if you cite an appropriate subset of the following papers:

@inproceedings{DollarICCV13edges,
  author    = {Piotr Doll\'ar and C. Lawrence Zitnick},
  title     = {Structured Forests for Fast Edge Detection},
  booktitle = {ICCV},
  year      = {2013},
}

@article{DollarARXIV14edges,
  author    = {Piotr Doll\'ar and C. Lawrence Zitnick},
  title     = {Fast Edge Detection Using Structured Forests},
  journal   = {ArXiv},
  year      = {2014},
}

@inproceedings{ZitnickECCV14edgeBoxes,
  author    = {C. Lawrence Zitnick and Piotr Doll\'ar},
  title     = {Edge Boxes: Locating Object Proposals from Edges},

3. Installation.

a) This code is written for the Matlab interpreter (tested with versions R2013a-2013b) and requires the Matlab Image Processing Toolbox. 

b) Additionally, Piotr's Matlab Toolbox (version 3.26 or later) is also required. It can be downloaded at:
 https://pdollar.github.io/toolbox/.

c) Next, please compile mex code from within Matlab (note: win64/linux64 binaries included):
  mex private/edgesDetectMex.cpp -outdir private [OMPPARAMS]
  mex private/edgesNmsMex.cpp    -outdir private [OMPPARAMS]
  mex private/spDetectMex.cpp    -outdir private [OMPPARAMS]
  mex private/edgeBoxesMex.cpp   -outdir private
Here [OMPPARAMS] are parameters for OpenMP and are OS and compiler dependent.
  Windows:  [OMPPARAMS] = '-DUSEOMP' 'OPTIMFLAGS="$OPTIMFLAGS' '/openmp"'
  Linux V1: [OMPPARAMS] = '-DUSEOMP' CFLAGS="\$CFLAGS -fopenmp" LDFLAGS="\$LDFLAGS -fopenmp"
  Linux V2: [OMPPARAMS] = '-DUSEOMP' CXXFLAGS="\$CXXFLAGS -fopenmp" LDFLAGS="\$LDFLAGS -fopenmp"
To compile without OpenMP simply omit [OMPPARAMS]; note that code will be single threaded in this case.

d) Add edge detection code to Matlab path (change to current directory first): 
 >> addpath(pwd); savepath;

e) Finally, optionally download the BSDS500 dataset (necessary for training/evaluation):
 http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Research/Projects/CS/vision/grouping/
 After downloading BSR/ should contain BSDS500, bench, and documentation.

f) A fully trained edge model for RGB images is available as part of this release. Additional models are available online, including RGBD/D/RGB models trained on the NYU depth dataset and a larger more accurate BSDS model.
