Image Processing

Date: 11 March 2015 - 13 March 2015
Time: 13:00 - 18:00
Location: UFZ Halle, Germany

Images are not just nice pictures, but scientific data. Yet, image processing is often considered to be an art, rather than science. The objective of this course is to outline a systematic approach to the analysis of image data. The course covers all important image processing steps from image enhancement of the raw data and image segmentation of the grayscale data, to quantitative image analysis. The focus is on X-ray microtomography images and 3D image processing. However, the methods are suitable for many image sources with two-dimenionsal data output like fluorescence microscopy or remote sensing. Therefore the course is suitable for a broad audience, from beginners to experienced users. The exercises will be carried out in ImageJ, one of the most popular image processing platforms in environmental and life sciences.

Target group

PhD students working with image data (microscopy, tomography, etc.)
