Skeletonizing / Thinning Algorithm for Images

Hi,

I looking for an algorithm that will skeletonize / thin binary (black
and white) images. Something like shown in the image:

Can somebody please point me to some source code that will do that?
Thank you,

Don't have any handy, but look in books about machine vision.

I know that commercial GIS applications have tools for doing this for finding
stream centerlines. You may try searching for algorithms to do stream
centerline determination. I don't know of free/open source code to do that.

I don't know of any pure C# libs. We had similar problems and solved
them just by wrapping IPPi (Intel Performance Primitives for image
processing) and OpenCV which have plenty of low- and high level image
processing functionality (i.e. morphological operations, distance
calculation) which you could use to implement thinning/skeletonizing
very easily and with high performance!

Did you get any result of your serach or did you implement it your self?

Could you share your result with me?
For what purpose did you need to implement this?
Best regards
