Watershed Transform or watershed segmentation technique is categorized under the segmentation techniques. It specifies the region based/ Boundary based segmentation, in which the segments are constructed on the basis of the regions. But, watershed transform in itself is not sufficient for the better results. In order to get more precise value, some other methodology need to be implemented with it. In this paper we have used the Edge detection based segmentation technique along with the watershed transform. Along with that, PDE-Based segmentation technique could also be used to get the accurate curvature value of the defined image. With the help of these additional methods, the segmentation could approximate the accuracy into the segmented image, which further would help in the various critical applications like medical diagnosis, traffic monitoring, pattern recognition, etc. In the previous paper, the whole scenario has been manifested along with the ideology of the concept. In this paper, the results will be examined using the prescribed ideology.
