Topics relating to processing of computer images

A 1980's Vax 4000 from The National Aeronatics and Space Administration, used to process satellite images


  • Active shape model - or ASMs, statistical models of the shape of an image, which iteratively deforms to fit the example of the object in a new image
  • Feature extraction - the extraction of a reduced set of features from a redundant input data stream
  • Image analysis - the extraction of meaningful information from digital images
  • Image coding - the transformation of an image into computer code
  • Image color analysis - the analysis of the color content of images
  • Image enhancement - the improvement of the picture quality of a digital image
  • Image fusion - the combining of relevant information from two or more images into one image
  • Image generation - the creation of digital images from source code or other information
  • Image recognition - the ability of computers to recognize relevant information in images
  • Image reconstruction - the process of recreating the original content of an image from a damaged or degraded copy
  • Image registration - the process of transforming different sets of data into one coordinate system, such as information from multiple images
  • Image representation - the display of a computerized image to a user
  • Image resolution - the level of detail embodied in an image
  • Image sampling - the use of discrete points or parts of an image to represent the whole, either for the purposes of storage or modification
  • Image segmentation - the process of partitioning an image into multiple segments or sets of pixels
  • Image sequences - the use of sequentially numbered images stored in separate files to store and exchange movies and moving images
  • Image texture - a set of metrics calculated in image processing designed to quantify the perceived texture of an image
  • Machine vision - or MV, is the process of applying a range of technologies and methods to provide image-based automatic control and inspection for industrial applications
  • Optical feedback - similar to acoustic feedback in that it occurs when a loop exists between an optical input and an optical output
  • Spatial coherence - the extent of cross-correlation between two points in a wave or a pattern
