This book provides a modern, algorithmic introduction to digital image p- cessing, designed to be used both by learners desiring a ?rm foundation on which to build and practitioners in search of critical analysis and modern - plementations of the most important techniques. This updated and enhanced paperbackedition ofourcomprehensivetextbookDigital Image Processing: An Algorithmic Approach Using Java packages the original material into a series of compactvolumes, therebysupporting a ?exiblesequenceofcoursesindigital image processing. Tailoring the contents to the scope of individual semester courses is also an attempt to provide a?ordable (and “backpack-compatible”) textbooks without comprimising the quality and depth of content. Oneapproachtolearninganewlanguageistobecomeconversantinthecore vocabulary and to start using it right away. At ?rst, you may only know how to ask for directions, order co?ee, and so on, but once you become con?dent with the core, you will start engaging others in “conversations” and rapidly learn how to get things done. This step-by-step approach works equally well in many areas of science and engineering. In this ?rst volume, ostentatiously titled Fundamental Techniques,wehave attemptedtocompilethecore“vocabulary” ofdigitalimageprocessing,starting from the basic concepts and elementary properties of digital images through simple statistics and point operations, fundamental ?ltering techniques, loc- ization of edges and contours, and basic operations on color images. Mastering these most commonly used techniques and algorithms will enable you to start being productive right away.

Product Description

Review

From the reviews:

"This slim volume is the first of a three-volume set. … the book’s overall coverage is sound--well written, with plenty of illustrative examples and elegant diagrams. … this book is a fine introduction to image processing, and some topics--color, in particular--are very well done indeed. … In summary, this is mostly a fine text. … with the addition of more exercises, this would be an excellent introduction to the field." (Alasdair McAndrew, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2009)

From the Back Cover

This easy-to-follow textbook provides a modern, algorithmic introduction to digital image processing, designed to be used both by learners desiring a firm foundation on which to build, and practitioners in search of critical analysis and concrete implementations of the most important techniques. The text compiles the key elements of digital image processing, starting from the basic concepts and elementary properties of digital images through simple statistics and point operations, fundamental filtering techniques, localization of edges and contours, and basic operations on color images. Mastering these most commonly used techniques will enable the reader to start being productive straight away.

Features and topics:

  • Practical examples and carefully constructed chapter-ending exercises drawn from the authors' years of experience teaching this material
  • Real implementations, concise mathematical notation, and precise algorithmic descriptions designed for programmers and practitioners
  • Easily adaptable Java code and completely worked-out examples for easy inclusion in existing (and rapid prototyping of new) applications
  • Uses ImageJ, the image processing system developed, maintained, and freely distributed by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • Provides a supplementary website with the complete Java source code, test images, and corrections – www.imagingbook.com
  • Additional presentation tools for instructors including a complete set of figures, tables, and mathematical elements

This concise, yet comprehensive and reader-friendly text is ideal for undergraduates studying foundation courses, as well as ideal for those seeking to expand their knowledge via self-study.

Wilhelm Burger, Ph.D., is the director of the Digital Media degree programs at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences at Hagenberg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, clear explanations 24 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Most of us use photo processing software, from the CDs that come with cheap cameras right up to Adobe Photoshop, and we know how to do things, but not how the system works. Those who are curious, or students beginning the study of image processing methods, will want clear but thorough explanations of the underlying algorithms.

This text assumes that the reader knows a little about Java, although knowledge of other similar computer languages will be sufficient to follow the programs. Everything else is very clearly and thoroughly explained with very clear diagrams.My only complaint is that some of the photo images before and after processing are rather small, and subtle distinctions which would be clear on screen or in larger pictures are not easy to see.

This is the first volume of three, the others expanding the contents of this one in much more detail, and adding more advanced techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good! 21 Aug 2010

Format:Paperback
The book arrived in very good condition, as new, a week after it was ordered.
The book is really useful for novices in image analysis who are using ImageJ.
