Example source code (DanielssonDistanceMapImageFilter.cxx):

// This example illustrates the use of the
// \doxygen{itk}{DanielssonDistanceMapImageFilter}.  This filter generates a
// distance map from the input image using the algorithm developed by
// Danielsson \cite{Danielsson1980}. As secondary outputs, a Voronoi
// partition of the input elements is produced, as well as a vector image
// with the components of the distance vector to the closest point. The input
// to the map is assumed to be a set of points on the input image. Each
// point/pixel is considered to be a separate entity even if they share the
// same gray level value.

// \index{itk::Danielsson\-Distance\-Map\-Image\-Filter!Header}
// The first step required to use this filter is to include its header file.
