In a previous paper (Snailum 2005) a method was presented which extracted a low contrast thermal human footprint from its surroundings using a novel operator. The morphological operation of dilation was demonstrated using a binary image. In this paper, greyscale images are employed with the dilation erosion and closing operations. Various structuring elements were tested. The best performance was obtained using a diagonal cross operator.
