Edge detection is one of the most commonly used methods in image analysis, and there are several algorithms available for detecting edges in to the images. The main purpose for this is that edges form the outline of an object. An edge is the border between an object and its background which indicates the border between the objects. So, if the edges in an image can be identified precisely, all of the objects can be located and basic properties such as area and shape can be measured. There are different edge detection techniques used to detection edges in image. In this paper, various edge detection techniques are surveyed as well as compared in order to figure out the most effective and accurate edge detection technique.
