Outliner - edge detection using contour dots algorithm

This open-source project demonstrates a new edge detection algorithm.
The vector-defined rectangular shapes, called contour dots, are hovering above the pixels of the raster image. The statistics of the pixels below is used for the accurate positionning and orienting the contour dots along the edges. Then the Bezier curves connect the centers of the found contour dots - approximating the real edge lines.
