Unlike MPEG, it is not a standard, so that compatibility of AVI video files and AVI players is not always guaranteed. axial representation: A region representation that uses a curve to describe the image region. The axis may be a skeleton derived from the region by a thinning process. axis of elongation: 1) The line that minimizes the second moment of the data points. If xi are the data points, and d x L is the distance from point x to line L, then the axis of elongation A minimizes 2 be the mean i d xi A .
