A new version of Blum's medial axial function (MAF) for visual patterns is presented. The new version is incorporated in the chord space analysis framework developed by the authors and has the advantage that, unlike the original version, it is defined for grey level pictures and is a much more ``robust'' definition. Computer generated examples are shown, and it is indicated how the technique is being applied by the authors in the development of a character recognition system.
