### Description

The operation computes the perimeter length of a region **shape**. Because regions are pixel-precise, the literal computation of the length of the region contour would lead to the overestimation of the diagonal edges. Therefore, the filter employs the following equation to approximate the result:

Where

**sides**denotes the number of pixel sides adjacent to the region background**vertices**is the number of turns to right during clockwise walk along the pixel sides of the region boundary**a**,**b**are constants defined as follows:

To compute the actual contour of the region, one can use RegionContours filter.

### Examples

### Complexity Level

This filter is available on **Basic** Complexity Level.
