A new approach for determining global threshold value of binary image is proposed in this paper. In the proposed algorithm, bit-plane information which involve the shapes of original image is used for dividing image into two parts; object and background. Optimal threshold value are selected based on difference values of average between two regions, which is considered in global binary thresholding. Proposed method is no need to set a initial value, and consequently, it is relatively simple as well as robust. Experimental results showed a good performance in preserving edge not only continuous tone images but also document image.
