In this paper, we present a novel approach which represents an image by using high-curvature points of the image surface. The basic concept and the morphological methods for finding these high-curvature points are introduced. This representation can faithfully keep the spatial information. The reconstruction of the original image using these high-curvature points is successfully developed and demonstrated. We also show a primitive linking process and the experiment results which have demonstrated the promising possibility of using this approach to compactly represent an image.
