Use for questions about the Canny edge detector

The Canny edge detector is a particular edge detection algorithm for finding edges in images. The process involves finding the gradients of the image, removing the non-maxima, application of a "double threshold" (two-level threshold for identifying strong edge, weak edge, and noise pixels), followed by edge tracking.

Some enhancements of the algorithm include a thinning procedure to ensure that all edges are a single pixel wide.
