Systems now-a-days are requiring huge database and massive power of computation. This cannot be gained using the available computation technology or computers. Execution time and large data processing are problems which are usually encountered in highly demanded applications such as multimedia processing. Grid computing technology offers a possible solution for computational intensive applications. Canny edge detection algorithm is known as the optimum algorithm for edge detection that performs edge detection in five different and computationally extensive stages, which consume large processing time.
