A technique for decomposing a binary shape into a union of simple binary shapes is presented. The decomposition is shown to be unique and invariant to translation, rotation, and scaling. The techniques used in the decomposition are based on mathematical morphology. The shape description produced can be used in object recognition and in binary image coding
