Catalog Description

After a brief review of 2-dimensional signal processing, the course discusses the processing of images on a computer. It includes methods of contrast manipulation, image smoothing, and image sharpening using a variety of linear and non-linear methods. Also discussed are methods of edge and line enhancement and detection, followed by techniques of image segmentation. The course concludes with a discussion of image degradation models and image restoration. (1051-716, 717 or permission of instructor) Class 4, Credit 4 (Fall Quarter)
