The technique of turning function is a powerful method for measuring similarity between two dimensional shapes. The method works well when the boundary of the shape does not contain noise edges. We propose an algorithm for smoothing noise edges by decomposing the boundary into monotone components and smoothing the noise edges in each component. We also present an implementation of the proposed smoothing algorithm.
