  • Identification of humans using gait

    We propose a view-based approach to recognize humans from their gait. Two different image features have been considered: the width of the outer contour of the binarized silhouette of the walking person and the entire binary silhouette itself. To obtain the observation vector from the image features, we employ two different methods. In the first method, referred to as the indirect approach, the hig... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel maximum a posteriori estimator for enhancing the spatial resolution of an image using co-registered high spatial-resolution imagery from an auxiliary sensor. Here, we focus on the use of high-resolution panchromatic data to enhance hyperspectral imagery. However, the estimation framework developed allows for any number of spectral bands in the primary and auxiliary imag... View full abstract»

  • Fundamental performance limits in image registration

    The task of image registration is fundamental in image processing. It often is a critical preprocessing step to many modern image processing and computer vision tasks, and many algorithms and techniques have been proposed to address the registration problem. Often, the performances of these techniques have been presented using a variety of relative measures comparing different estimators, leaving ... View full abstract»

  • Region filling and object removal by exemplar-based image inpainting

    A new algorithm is proposed for removing large objects from digital images. The challenge is to fill in the hole that is left behind in a visually plausible way. In the past, this problem has been addressed by two classes of algorithms: 1) "texture synthesis" algorithms for generating large image regions from sample textures and 2) "inpainting" techniques for filling in small image gaps. The forme... View full abstract»

  • Image restoration subject to a total variation constraint

    Total variation has proven to be a valuable concept in connection with the recovery of images featuring piecewise smooth components. So far, however, it has been used exclusively as an objective to be minimized under constraints. In this paper, we propose an alternative formulation in which total variation is used as a constraint in a general convex programming framework. This approach places no l... View full abstract»

  • Iterative multimodel subimage binarization for handwritten character segmentation

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):1223 - 1230

    Existing binarization methods are categorized as either global or local. In this paper, we present a new category, where the image is considered a collection of subimages. Each subimage provides a statistical model for the handwritten characters that can be used to optimize the binarization of other subimages based on gray-level and stroke-run features. The proposed method uses these multimodels t... View full abstract»

  • Efficient energies and algorithms for parametric snakes

    Parametric active contour models are one of the preferred approaches for image segmentation because of their computational efficiency and simplicity. However, they have a few drawbacks which limit their performance. In this paper, we identify some of these problems and propose efficient solutions to get around them. The widely-used gradient magnitude-based energy is parameter dependent; its use wi... View full abstract»

  • Morse description and geometric encoding of digital elevation maps

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):1245 - 1262

    Two complementary geometric structures for the topographic representation of an image are developed in this work. The first one computes a description of the Morse-topological structure of the image, while the second one computes a simplified version of its drainage structure. The topographic significance of the Morse and drainage structures of digital elevation maps (DEMs) suggests that they can ... View full abstract»

  • Primary-consistent soft-decision color demosaicking for digital cameras (patent pending)

    Color mosaic sampling schemes are widely used in digital cameras. Given the resolution of CCD sensor arrays, the image quality of digital cameras using mosaic sampling largely depends on the performance of the color demosaicking process. A common problem with existing color demosaicking algorithms is an inconsistency of sample interpolations in different primary color channels, which is the cause ... View full abstract»

    Tree-structured vector quantizers (TSVQ) and their variants have recently been proposed. All trees used are fixed M-ary tree structured, such that the training samples in each node must be artificially divided into a fixed number of clusters. This paper proposes a variable-branch tree-structured vector quantizer (VBTSVQ) based on a genetic algorithm, which searches for the number of child nodes of... View full abstract»
