This category contains links to research and state of the art technology in Image Processing. Image Processing is the computer manipulation of images. Some of the many algorithms used in image processing include convolution (on which many others are based), FFT, DCT, thinning (or skeletonisation), edge detection and contrast enhancement. These are usually implemented in software but may also use special purpose hardware for speed. Image processing contrasts with computer graphics, which is usually more concerned with the generation of artificial images, and visualisation, which attempts to understand (real-world) data by displaying it as an artificial image (e.g. a graph). Image processing is used in image recognition and computer vision. (source:
Please submit only sites in English that comply with the Category Description. Sites written in other languages should be submitted to an appropriate category of the World branch instead. Sites that are meant for users in a particular region belong to the Regional branch. If they appeal to global users but correspond to a region, we recommend you submit them to both this and a regional category. Don''t submit commercial sites to this category. Company Websites belong to their most proper category in the Business branch. Sites that sell products online belong to their most adequate one in the Shopping branch. Sites for image processing belong to the Software subcategory. When submitting a site, please use a name and a description that are appropriately informative and objective, with no hype.
The importance of this topic in medicine, industry, and even its application in educations (as some new sites highlights the application of edge detection in educating kids for example how to color edge images). Therefore, I suggest this category to include descriptive sites about this topic, the research done so far in edge detection, techniques , algorithms, ... etc.
It is preferable that the site Title includes the words edge detection or similar.
