Image Analysis (3 cu) 173331-173335

Course description

The first part of the course introduces to digital image processing techniques such as histogram manipulation, filtering, thresholding, segmentation and shape detection. They are basic components in many applications in image analysis. In the second part, we focus on selected topics in image analysis such as curve estimation, color quantization, clustering techniques, image retrieval, image compression, statistical filtering, and motion analysis.

Project work

It is possible to make additional project work (Advanced IT Laboratory, course code 173336, 1-5 cu) from selected topics related to Image Analysis course. Preliminary requirement is that Object-Oriented Programming project work has been completed, or good programming skills. Topics will be available on request, or announced during in Lectures and Exercises. Typical project works are 1-2 cu and done individually, larger tasks can be made as group work if necessary. The Project work includes programming task (preferably in C or C++), experiments with images, and writing brief documentation to describe the problem, solution, illustrations of examples, and conclusions drawn from the experiments. Topics:
