In this paper, we propose a C# implementation of the split and merge algorithm with a main applicability directed towards image segmentation. The algorithm process color and grayscale images by splitting them following quad-tree decomposition over intensity homogeneity criterion. Then adjacent blocks, including such from different tree levels, are merged together to form candidate regions for segmentation. Area filtration of the regions is the final processing step prior to generating the output map of the application. Testing is done with images containing printed text over complex background and promising results are registered.
