For this reason, it is developed an automated tool to analyze astronomical images into its components. Firstly, a 2D images is decomposed into different spatial scales based on wavelet transform. Then, it is implemented a detection algorithms to each spatial scale, such as Clumpfind, Gaussclump, or Dendrogram techniques. The goal is to build a new algorithmtool that is available to the community and satisfies the requirements of the next Chilean Virtual Observatory (ChiVO).}, year = {2014}, doi = {10.1117/12.2055579}, URL = { http://dx.doi.org/10.1117/12.2055579}, eprint = {}} (2014)
