Course detail

Computer Methods of Image Processing

FSI-9MZOAcad. year: 2016/2017Winter semesterNot applicable.. year of study1  credit

This course covers the subject of classical and digital photogtaphy, image processing and analysis by means of computer. The course familiarises PhD students with the digital image processing theory and selected topics of image analysis. It focuses on digital images representation and reconstruction, filtration in frequency and spatial domain, noise analysis and filtration, image enhancement, image segmentation, objects analysis and recognition, analysis of multi-spectral images.
