I don't exactly know if this is the place to ask it, but I'm looking for the original paper of the Moore Neighborhood algorithm. I need to make a reference to it (or whoever came up with it). I can't seem to find the origin, just other people using it. Does anyone have an idea what I need to cite for this ?

Perhaps G.A. Moore, "Automatic scanning and computer processes for the quantitative analysis of micrographs and equivalent subjects". Pattern Recognition: Pictorial Pattern Recognition, 1:275-326, 1969. – Marzio De Biasi Sep 24 '14 at 15:23
