About the Authors
  • In classic "cookbook style,” this book offers guided access for researchers and practitioners to techniques for the digital manipulation and analysis of images, ranging from the simplest steps to advanced functions. Drawing on their long experience as users and developers of image analysis algorithms and software, the authors present a description and implementation of the most suitable procedures in easy-to-use form. Each self-contained section treats a single operation, describing typical situations requiring that operation and discussing the algorithm and implementation. Sections start with a "before" and "after" pictorial example and a ready-reference listing typical applications, keywords, and related procedures. This new edition has additional sections on Gabor filtering and on threshholding by connectivity, plus an expanded program listing and suggested projects for classroom use. And now the accompanying CD-ROM contains C programs not only as source code for carrying out the book's procedures but also as executables with a graphical user interface for Windows and Linux.

    • Presented in easy-to-use 'cookbook' style with full cross-references, pictorial examples, and keywords
    • Provides a GUI for the code for all procedures, included on CDROM, to make the programs as easy to use as possible
    • An expanded program listing and suggested projects for classroom use

    Reviews & endorsements

    "New to the second edition of this well-designed textbook and reference are sections on Gabor filtering, thresholding by connectivity, and a chapter describing all the programs. The book's focus is on hands-on applications and includes a separate chapter of projects, many of them new to this edition, applying the processes described. The sections are grouped by operation and provide clear instruction on the procedure, with before and after images, keywords, specific applications, and related procedures. The various programs used for a procedure, such as global, gray-scale, or binary image analysis are each discussed in separate section, with programs provided accordingly. The CD-ROM contains C programs used in the procedures and executable with a graphic interface for Windows and Linux. Of the three authors, O'Gorman and Michael J. Sammon were both with Bell Laboratories and are now with Avaya Labs: Michael Seul, formerly of AT&T Bell Laboratories, is the founder of BioArray Solutions." --Book News
