How can I detect islands in a contour plot?
7 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to detect abnormalities in data with respect to two variables. (Imagine an smoothly varying image where you are trying to detect anomolies/discrepancies).
I can detect these manually by looking for islands in a contour map, but I can't seem to figure out how to algorithmically detect them. In particular, I am looking for a way to detect embedded islands (e.g. islands within islands).
How can I detect the regions where islands occur? Thanks
