“Given the timely topic and its user–friendly structure, this book can therefore target a suite of users, from students to experienced researchers willing to integrate the science of image processing to strengthen their research.” (Ethology Ecology & Evolution, 1 May 2013)
Clearly divided into eleven distinct chapters, the book begins with a fast-start introduction to image processing to enhance the accessibility of later topics. Subsequent chapters offer increasingly advanced discussion of topics involving more challenging concepts, with the final chapter looking at the application of automated image classification (with Matlab examples) .
Matlab is frequently used in the book as a tool for demonstrations, conducting experiments and for solving problems, as it is both ideally suited to this role and is widely available. Prior experience of Matlab is not required and those without access to Matlab can still benefit from the independent presentation of topics and numerous examples.
- Includes numerous examples, graded exercises and computer experiments to support both students and instructors alike.
