-- Provides system models to help readers understand how algorithms and processes relate.
-- CD-ROM contains valuable software for developing CVIP applications, including a complete development environment.
This is an immensely practical guide to the growing integration of computer vision and image processing (CVIP) technologies.
This book takes an applications-oriented, engineering approach to CVIP. It organizes approaches and methods to CVIP applications development, and provides a set of reusable software tools on CD-ROM. The first part of the book contains all the basic concepts, models, and algorithms necessary to understand CVIP, with numerous references and examples. The second part of the book shows how to use the CVIPtools computer imaging development environment to create new applications quickly and effectively. The CD-ROM includes all the software: source code, libraries, TCL shell, setup and installation strips, and GUI-based CVIPtools. An image database is included to simplify algorithm development.
