Overview

Image processing, the use of computers to process pictures, has revolutionized the fields of medicine, space exploration, geology, and oceanography, and has become the hottest area in digital signal processing. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the most popular image processing techniques used today, without getting bogged down in the complex mathematical presentations found in most image processing books and journals.

The book covers the hottes t topics in image proessing, including whole chapters on the processing of color images, image warping and morphing techniques, and image compression. The diskette, written in portable C code, provides a "hands-on" introduction to image processing techniques that can be incorporated into the user's applications.

For computer programmers and electrical engineers who need to enhance image processing applications.
