Digital Image Processing: Image Processing and Analysis with
the Power of Mathematica
July 7, 2000--Wolfram Research announces the release of Digital Image
Processing, a new Mathematica application package with a
powerful collection of fundamental and advanced image processing tools.
Because Digital Image Processing's functionality is completely
integrated into Mathematica, users can perform much more
sophisticated analyses with it than with standard image processing software.
Digital Image Processing was designed for engineers, scientists,
medical professionals, and students who need versatile, comprehensive
image processing software. The package contains a large assortment of
image transformation and manipulation tools as well as an interactive
manual and tutorial to get new users started quickly. Advanced users can
take advantage of the flexibility of Mathematica to create and
automate custom analyses and to design prototype procedures and
With Digital Image Processing you can:
"I knew I was dealing with a powerful product when I encountered
in the User's Guide an
animation of morphological modifications to an image.
The scope that features like this provide for sharing results with domain
experts who aren't image processing experts or mathematicians is
tremendous," says Dr. Barrie Stokes, a mathematical and statistical
consultant and Director of Systemathica Pty Limited.
- Import and export more than 15 standard image formats
- Use grayscale, RGB, HSV, and CMYK color models
- Apply dozens of predefined filters and filter-design algorithms
- Perform region-of-interest processing over arbitrary polygonal regions
- Smooth and sharpen images and reduce noise
Dr. Mariusz Jankowski, the author of Digital Image Processing, has
won numerous awards for his work in electrical engineering education. This
package and its accompanying documentation are based in part on his
University of Southern Maine courses, which incorporate the use of
professional, state-of-the-art tools.
