This paper introduces two alternative computational frameworks for the extraction of the directional primitives present in an image. Both frameworks are divided into three stages: low level primitive extraction, organisation of low level primitives by means of dynamical neural networks (growing cell structures) and segment extraction through a pseudo-colour Hough transform. The alternative frameworks are compared and their relative advantages and disadvantages are outlined.
