THE Must-have introduction to image processing for both students and practitioners.
This comprehensive and state-of-the art approach to image processing gives engineers and students a comprehensive introduction, and includes full coverage of key applications: image watermarking, fingerprint recognition, face recognition and iris recognition and medical imaging. To help learn the concepts and techniques, the book contains a CD-ROM of 70 highly interactive visual demonstrations. Key algorithms and their implementation details are included, as are the latest developments in the standards.
* A complete and modern introduction to the basic and intermediate concepts of image processing - edited and written by the leading people in the field
* An essential reference for all types of engineers working on image processing applications
* A CD-ROM contains 70 highly interactive demonstration programs with user friendly interfaces to provide a visual presentation of the concepts
* Up-to-date content, including statistical modelling of natural, anisotropic diffusion, image quality and the latest developments in JPEG 2000
