Image processing and computer vision are currently hot topics with undergraduates and professionals alike. "Feature Extraction and Image Processing" provides an essential guide to the implementation of image processing and computer vision techniques, explaining techniques and fundamentals in a clear and concise manner. Readers can develop working techniques, with usable code provided throughout and working Matlab and Mathcad files on the web. Focusing on feature extraction while also covering issues and techniques such as image acquisition, sampling theory, point operations and low-level feature extraction, the authors have a clear and coherent approach that will appeal to a wide range of students and professionals.The new edition includes: a new coverage of curvature in low-level feature extraction (SIFT and saliency) and features (phase congruency); geometric active contours; morphology; and camera models and an updated coverage of image smoothing (anistropic diffusion); skeletonization; edge detection; curvature; and shape descriptions (moments). It is an essential reading for engineers and students working in this cutting edge field. It is an ideal module text and background reference for courses in image processing and computer vision. It features a companion website that includes worksheets, links to free software, Matlab files, solutions and new demonstrations.

Mark Nixon is the Professor in Computer Vision at the University of Southampton UK. His research interests are in image processing and computer vision. His team develops new techniques for static and moving shape extraction which have found application in biometrics and in medical image analysis. His team were early workers in automatic face recognition, later came to pioneer gait recognition and more recently joined the pioneers of ear biometrics. With Tieniu Tan and Rama Chellappa, their book Human ID based on Gait is part of the Springer Series on Biometrics and was published in 2005. He has chaired/ program chaired many conferences (BMVC 98, AVBPA 03, IEEE Face and Gesture FG06, ICPR 04, ICB 09, IEEE BTAS 2010) and given many invited talks. Dr. Nixon is a Fellow IET and a Fellow IAPR. Alberto Aguado is a principal programmer at Sportradar, where he works developing Image Processing and real-time multi-camera 3D tracking technologies for sport events. Previously, he worked as a technology programmer for Electronic Arts and for Black Rock Disney Game Studios. He worked as a Lecturer in the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing in the University of Surrey. He pursued a postdoctoral fellowship in Computer Vision at INRIA Rhone-Alpes and he received his PhD in Computer Vision /Image Processing from the University of Southampton.
