Image Analysis and Mathematical Morphology, Volume 1

From the Preface

Mathematical morphology was once born in 1964 whilst G. Matheron was once requested to enquire the relationships among the geometry of porous media and their permeabilities, and while even as, i used to be requested to quantify the petrography of iron ores, on the way to expect their milling homes. This preliminary interval (1964-1968) has ended in a primary physique of theoretical notions (Hit or pass over alterations, openings and closings, Boolean models), and in addition within the first prototype of the feel analyser. It used to be additionally the time of the construction of the Centre de Morphologie Mathematique at the campus of the Paris university of Mines at Fontainebleau (France). exceptionally, the hot crew had came across its personal type, made up of a symbiosis among theoretical study, purposes and layout of units.

These have the next concept in universal: the concept of a geometric constitution, or texture, isn't in simple terms target. It doesn't exist within the phenomenon itself, nor within the observer, yet someplace in among the 2. Mathematical morphology quantifies this instinct by means of introducing the idea that of structuring parts. selected by way of the morphologist, they have interaction with the thing lower than learn, enhancing its form and· lowering it to a kind of cartoon that is extra expressive than the particular preliminary phenomenon. the ability of the technique, but additionally its hassle, lies during this structural sorting. certainly, the necessity for a common thought for the principles of deformations seemed quickly. the strategy advanced due to an interchange among highbrow intuitions and functional calls for coming from the purposes. This ultimately bring about the content material of this e-book. at the means, numerous researchers joined the preliminary staff and constituted what's now known as the "Fontainebleau School". between them, we will quote J. C. Klein, P. Delfiner, H. Digabel, M. Gauthier, D. Jeulin, E. Kolomenski, Y. Sylvestre, Ch. Lantuejoul, F. Meyer and S. Beucher.

A new idea by no means seems by way of spontaneous iteration. It begins from a few preliminary wisdom and grows in a undeniable context. The genealogy of mathematical morphology basically includes the 2 branches of imperative geometry and geometrical possibilities, plus a couple of collateral ancestors (harmonic research, stochastic procedures, algebraic topology). except mathematical morphology, 3 different parallel branches should be regarded as present descendants of an analogous tree. they're stereology, aspect procedures and stochastic geometry as constructed via D. G. Kendall's institution at Cambridge. Stereology, in contrast to the opposite , is orientated in the direction of functions. The stereologists have succeeded in placing the key theorems of essential geometry into perform. certainly their society regroups biologists and experts of the cloth sciences whose mutual curiosity lies within the quantitative description of constructions, largely on the microscopic scale.

The different and newer department of "picture processing" seemed within the usa first and foremost of the Nineteen Sixties due to the N. A. S. A. actions. at the present time, its scope has prolonged to domain names except satellite tv for pc imagery, its viewers has turn into extra foreign and is now represented by means of clinical societies comparable to that of development attractiveness. those scientists are regrouped extra through a typical category of difficulties (enhancement and segmentation of images, function extraction, distant sensing) than by way of a particular method. the following, the theoretical instruments usually belong to the convolution and filtering tools (Fourier, Karhuhen-Loeve and so on. ); additionally they use a few algorithms of mathematical morphology with out connecting them with the overall underlying notions. ultimately, to a lesser volume, they borrow their strategies from syntactic and rest methods.

The final tree to which mathematical morphology belongs is that of photograph analysers. it all started in 1951, whilst J. Von Neumann proposed an automated strategy which in comparison each one pixel with its fast neighbours. during the last two decades, approximately thirty prototypes of units were equipped for electronic picture research. one of the few of them that have been commercialized, we will be able to quote the quantimets, in response to classical stereology, and the Leitz texture analyser, which was once the best-selling photograph analyser on the finish of the 1970s.

The necessity to build a tool that may simply practice morphological operations on genuine specimens seemed very early in my paintings. i needed to layout an similar of the pc for geometry, the place the hit and miss transformation and its derivatives could exchange the fundamental algebraic operations cabled within the traditional pcs. I known as this invention the feel analyser, and with an expanding participation of J. C. Klein, I equipped 4 prototypes among 1965 and 1975. The Wild-Leitz corporation got the licence in 1970 and at present produces this device, after having remodelled it for advertisement merchandising. even though the quasi-totality of the examples and of the images of this ebook come from texture analysers, i've got systematically kept away from describing know-how and undefined.

Anyway, this actual method, like several machine elements, will quickly turn into out of date. The applied sciences will swap, yes particular workouts should be pre-programmed by way of microprocessors, the interior constitution may be made extra parallel, or extra pipelined, however the inspiration of the feel analyser will stay an analogous. it is because, through the fundamental morphological operations, it hyperlinks the particular experiments to very basic necessities of the experimentation of geometrical structures.

Schematically, forty% of the cloth of this booklet has no longer been released earlier than, one other forty% comes from works of the Fontainebleau tuition yet isn't really consistently popular, and the remaining comes from different assets. i've got set the extent of the ebook on the interface of purposes and thought, and feature emphasised the hyperlinks among modes of operation and normal underlying recommendations. A complete set of natural mathematical effects are available in G. Matheron (I 975). I quote, with out proofs, his most vital theorems.

This e-book is directed to the triple viewers of the clients of the tactic (biologists, metallographers, geologists, geographers of aerial imagery . .. ), the experts of photo processing and the theoreticians (probabilists, statisticians). those assorted different types of readers should not used to an identical formalism, neither do they formulate their ideas in a typical language. as a result, I needed to discover a universal flooring for the 3, which isn't a simple activity. i am hoping the reader will excuse me if i haven't thoroughly succeeded. for instance, i've got shunned utilizing programming languages or even circulate charts, who prefer to offer the morphological notions in the extra normal framework of set geometry. unusual phrases similar to "idempotence" or "antiextensivity" tend to surprise many naturalists; i do know this, yet their geometrical interpretations are so intuitive that each experimenter will quickly grab their meaning.

Apart from the language of mathematical morphology, its methodological deductions may well bewilder the reader used to a different conceptual heritage. maybe this trouble should be lessened if I make a couple of reviews at the subject.

Mathematical morphology bargains with units in Euclidean or electronic areas, and considers the capabilities outlined in an n-dimensional area as specific units of size n + l (classically, in photo processing, the functionality is the first concept and the set is a selected case). To invert the concern among units and features leads us to stress the non-linear operations of sup and inf to the detriment of addition and subtraction.

Basically, the gadgets below research are regarded as being embedded within the ordinary Euclidean house; afterwards they're digitalized (in distinction to this, photo processing is largely digital). appropriate topologies then let the robustness of the morphological operations to be studied. this may be most unlikely in a natural electronic framework, the place the reference of the Euclidean area is lacking. i do know that common topology isn't commonly used to nearly all of the readers, however it is the cost we need to pay for analysing the steadiness, the standard, i. e. ultimately the which means of the entire sensible algorithms.

As we've seen, the most aim of morphology is to bare the constitution of the items by means of remodeling the units which version them (such a objective generalizes that of quintessential geometry and of stereology, which is composed of reworking bounded units into major numbers). even if, prepared modifications aren't on the similar point. Algorithms are ruled by way of extra normal standards, which in tum fulfill a number of common constraints. somebody wishing to grasp mathematical morphology needs to assimilate this vertical hierarchy (picture processing is incomparably extra "horizontal"). subsequently, we didn't layout the ebook in keeping with a variety of difficulties resembling picture enhancement, filtering, or segmentation, yet on a type in keeping with standards and similar questions. each morphological criterion can help to section a picture, based upon the kind of picture and the preliminary wisdom of it that we own. it truly is accurately this knowledge which orients us in the direction of one or one other kind of criteria.

A powerful counterpoint interlaces standards to types. It usually brings set versions into play, however the advent of probabilistic notions opens the door to the extra particular classification of random set types. this provides upward thrust to the 4 major components of the booklet: theoretical instruments, partial wisdom, standards, random models.

This booklet could be learn in different alternative ways, based upon the sphere of curiosity of the reader. The textual content itself is built in a logical order the place each new notion is brought just about the previous notions and never to the next ones. the sort of rule, obligatory while one writes a booklet, doesn't must be revered by means of the readers. anyone commonly attracted to the algorithms and their experimental implementation may possibly commence with the 1st chapters and bounce on to the 4 chapters on standards. He may also pass over the theoretical sections integrated in those six chapters if he needs (i. e. bankruptcy II, part E; bankruptcy IX, part D; bankruptcy X, part F; bankruptcy XI, Sections B, C, D; bankruptcy XII, Sections B, G, H). the 1st analyzing will almost certainly encourage him to head extra. He can then pursue with the extra theoretical chapters, both these targeted on chance or on the other hand these on geometry. should still he choose to persist with the best way proposed for statisticians and probabilists, then the second one point includes Chapters V (parameters), VIII (sampling) and XIII (random sets). If he feels extra tempted by means of geometrical equipment, then we recommend another step along with Chapters IV (convexity), VI and VII (digital morphology) and the theoretical enhances skipped over within the first examining. ultimately, bankruptcy III is a assessment of topological effects wanted virtually all over the ebook, and bankruptcy XIV, a nontechnical end.

Example text

The figures are all drawn without the use of underdrawing. Subsurface analysis is especially valuable in the antiques market, which contends with many forms of deception. Many pieces of antique furniture are sold as being unrestored, when in fact they have sometimes been quite extensively modified. A very common example of this involves repairs to wood veneers. Veneers were attached to a substrate of heavier, stronger wood using animal glues. Over time this glue can weaken, creating loose pieces of veneer that can get torn off over the years.

Bottom–SWIR (950–1700 nm) image. (Courtesy of FLIR) Infrared and Ultraviolet: The Edges of the Rainbow 35 As you might expect, UV light is not transmitted through the atmosphere in the same way as visible light or NIW/SWIR light. Aerosols and particulates in the air tend to absorb and scatter UV. Certain types of air pollution absorb UV light and get converted to other chemicals. Every good film photographer has a 2A haze filter for their camera lenses. These filters protect the lens surface and also reduce UV haze that is especially apparent in landscape photography.

For example, a sanded piece of metal that is a very diffuse reflector of visible light can look like an almost perfect mirror to a thermal infrared camera! Ultraviolet imaging is useful for some types of forensic analysis, which is often concerned with seeing invisible traces of a crime that may have been overlooked by naked-eye inspection. For example, shortwave ultraviolet imaging has proven to be quite useful in locating and recording latent fingerprints (fingerprints that have not been processed with powder or fuming and that are not readily apparent to the naked eye).
