This is the demonstration code for the "Compact Morphology-based Nodule Delineation" (CoMoNoD) algorithm.
CoMoNoD is a rapid method to delineate poly-metallic (or manganese) nodules from vertical benthic images. The paper describing the algorithm is currently under review. This algorithm makes extensive use of the OpenCV library for image processing and uses NVIDIA CUDA for computational speedup.
