Book Description

December 21, 2010 0470643854 978-0470643853 2
A cookbook of algorithms for common image processing applications

Thanks to advances in computer hardware and software, algorithms have been developed that support sophisticated image processing without requiring an extensive background in mathematics. This bestselling book has been fully updated with the newest of these, including 2D vision methods in content-based searches and the use of graphics cards as image processing computational aids. It’s an ideal reference for software engineers and developers, advanced programmers, graphics programmers, scientists, and other specialists who require highly specialized image processing.

  • Algorithms now exist for a wide variety of sophisticated image processing applications required by software engineers and developers, advanced programmers, graphics programmers, scientists, and related specialists
  • This bestselling book has been completely updated to include the latest algorithms, including 2D vision methods in content-based searches, details on modern classifier methods, and graphics cards used as image processing computational aids
  • Saves hours of mathematical calculating by using distributed processing and GPU programming, and gives non-mathematicians the shortcuts needed to program relatively sophisticated applications.

Algorithms for Image Processing and Computer Vision, 2nd Edition provides the tools to speed development of image processing applications.

From the Back Cover

Now — the hottest algorithms for specialized image processing are right in your hands

With this accessible cookbook of algorithms, you'll gain access to the most wanted image-processing applications, including morphology, image restoration, and symbol recognition. Throughout these pages, you'll find real-life examples that clearly describe the latest techniques, saving you hours of lengthy mathematical calculations. And all code is also included on the website, so you can experiment with your own ideas and algorithms for organizing and searching image data sets.

This updated edition provides practical solutions so you can:

  • Program state-of-the-art image-processing capabilities into software

  • Find the steps for taking advantage of classifiers

  • Apply 2D vision methods in content-based searches

  • Perform edge detection, thinning, thresholding, and morphology

  • Link all the computers on your network into a large image-processing cluster

  • Program the GPU to do image-processing and vision tasks

  • Select the best method for searching through images

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and simple explanations May 16, 2013
Format:Paperback
Of all the computer vision books I have encountered, AIPCV does the best job of explaining concepts clearly and engagingly without sacrificing rigor. Readers don't have to suffer deciphering super concise math notations and the author does a great job of showing how to actually implement these algorithms. Take any computer vision concept like Canny Edge Detector and compare it with other CV books to see what I mean. I only wish the book used OpenCV 2.x instead of 1.x but that's just bad timing. Moreover, to my knowledge, there aren't any comprehensive CV books out there that have OpenCV 2.x examples.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff Ready to Apply November 25, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great; the author does a magnificent job presenting often complex algorithms with just the right amount of discussion to make the ensuing algorithm easy to understand. He does it again and again, but in particular I enjoyed the treatment of symbol recognition followed immediately by a chapter on OCR as an application thereof.

Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth money and time January 7, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't read the whole thing because it would take me forever and ever effort to understand the contents. I read chap3. morphology. The examples are almost impossible to understand. Their coordinates doesn't make sense (or just simply wrong), and C source codes are cryptic. The variables are like i, j, oi, oj, nc, nr, is, js, etc.
If someone already understands the image processing well, they may understand them but not I. I would return the book if I hadn't spill my coffee on it accidently. Oh well. I am giving 2 stars because some introductory part (chap1) was actually helpful.
