Features

  • Describes the human visual process, identifying what cues the viewer responds to or normally overlooks in images
  • Details image printing and storage techniques, since many images are processed in the context of reproduction, storage, or transmission
  • Presents a robust collection of image processing tools to provide an understanding of the methods employed in various software packages and which steps are best suited for particular applications
  • Compares different image processing algorithms, using a selection of macroscopic, forensic, remote sensing, and astronomical images, as well as representative pictures from various microscopy techniques
  • Incorporates examples of image processing and analysis from a wide variety of disciplines, and at all scales, from the nano- to astro-, including real-world macroscopic images
  • Discusses the measurements of size, position, brightness, shape, and more, demonstrating how measurement data may be used for classification or recognition of objects

Summary

Consistently rated as the best overall introduction to computer-based image processing, The Image Processing Handbook covers two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) imaging techniques, image printing and storage methods, image processing algorithms, image and feature measurement, quantitative image measurement analysis, and more.

Incorporating image processing and analysis examples at all scales, from nano- to astro-, this Seventh Edition:

  • Features a greater range of computationally intensive algorithms than previous versions
  • Provides better organization, more quantitative results, and new material on recent developments
  • Includes completely rewritten chapters on 3D imaging and a thoroughly revamped chapter on statistical analysis
  • Contains more than 1700 references to theory, methods, and applications in a wide variety of disciplines
  • Presents 500+ entirely new figures and images, with more than two-thirds appearing in color

The Image Processing Handbook, Seventh Edition delivers an accessible and up-to-date treatment of image processing, offering broad coverage and comparison of algorithms, approaches, and outcomes.
