All images with all the cyan-to-red colour scheme show the relative width with the opposite side on the line, from the skeleton centre, for the edge; if a side is wider in proportion it's shown in red; narrower is shown in cyan.

We mitigate this, in element, by smoothing both the centre line of your skeleton plus the outer edge, even though constraining the positions of your edge points. Edge-to-skeleton distances are determined for all points on the smoothed line edge, matching with the nearest points (shown in Fig 10A) on the smoothed skeleton line title= jrsm.2011.110120 which satisfy: edge ?xskel ??slopeskel edge ?yskel ??0 ??As derived in the dot solution with the vector around the edge-to-skeleton distance plus the orthogonal vector (1, slope) in the skeleton at that point, an interpolated point on the skeleton might be obtained (shown in Fig 10B). Line-width measurements may be produced in conjunction with edge-to-skeleton measurements by locating a line segment around the opposing edge, title= a0023499 which can be intersected by the vector created amongst the edge point and skeleton point from the prior step (shown in Fig 10C).
