Image processing, the use of computers to process pictures, has revolutionized the fields of medicine, space exploration, geology, and oceanography, and has become the hottest area in digital signal processing. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the most popular image processing techniques used today, without getting bogged down in the complex mathematical presentations found in most image processing books and journals.
The book covers the hottes t topics in image proessing, including whole chapters on the processing of color images, image warping and morphing techniques, and image compression. The diskette, written in portable C code, provides a "hands-on" introduction to image processing techniques that can be incorporated into the user's applications.
For computer programmers and electrical engineers who need to enhance image processing applications.
A book/disk primer and resource guide for programmers familiar with C, bypassing mathematical theory and offering practical instructions and real-world examples for image processing. Coverage includes all classes of image processing algorithms, basics of visual perception, and techniques for scaling, rotation, digital morphing, filtering, and image compression. Also covers color, image warping, and Fourier transforms. The companion disk contains source code. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
