To be used in any senior- or graduate-level Computer Imaging Applications-Oriented course. Also for use as a laboratory text in a standard computer vision and/or image processing course.

This application-oriented approach to Computer Vision and Image Processing (CVIP) brings these two separate but related fields together with an engineering perspective. A just-in-time approach presents topics as they become necessary for practical applications. This approach allows students to see an immediate need for the tools and topics presented, providing motivation for learning.

True computer imaging for engineers!

Digital signal processing has long been the domain of electrical engineers, while the manipulation of image data has been handled by computer scientists. The convergence of these two specialties in the field of Computer Vision and Image Processing (CVIP) is the subject of this pragmatic book, written from an applications perspective and accompanied by its own educational and developmentsoftware environment, CVIPtools. Illustrated with hundreds of examples, Computer Vision and Image Processing brings together the theory of computer imaging with the tools needed for practical research and development.

The first part of Computer Vision and Image Processing presents a system model for each of the major application areas of CVIP, relating each specific algorithm to the overall process of applications development.

The areas covered are:

  • Image analysis
  • Image restoration
  • Image enhancement
  • Image compression

Computer Vision and Image Processing's second half focuses on the use of the CVIPtools environment, the software developed especially by the author and included on the accompanying CD-ROM. These advanced chapters discuss:

  • Software features and applications
  • CVIPtools software development environment
  • Library descriptions and function prototypes

CVIPtools is a GUI-based application, which includes an extended Tcl shell, that is ANSI-C compatible and runs on most flavors of UNIX and Windows NT/95.

To get the most out of Computer Vision and Image Processing, a basic background in mathematics and computers is necessary. Knowledge of the C programming language will enhance the usefulness of the algorithms used in programming, and an understanding of signal and system theory is helpful in mastering transforms and compression.

Engineers, programmers, graphics specialists, multimedia developers, and medical imaging professionals will all appreciate Computer Vision and Image Processing's solid introduction for anyone who uses computer imaging.
