Course overview
This course aims to develop knowledge of image processing techniques to select appropriate processing techniques for images from a wide range of sources.

This course is suitable for delegates wishing to gain a basic level of competence in the operation of the Erdas Imagine image processing package.

Course description

Introduction: role of image processing methods
Image restoration and display: digital representation of imagery by scanners, spatial resolution, pixels, spectral resolution, digital format of images.
RGB and IHS colour space representations
Corrections for scanner malfunctions
Image enhancement: contrast stretching (linear, bilinear, gaussian, histogram equalisation and manual), digital filtering in the spatial domain (low-pass, high-pass, high-boost, median and directional)
Geometric correction: map projections, selection of ground control points, transform equations, resampling methods (nearest neighbour, bilinear interpolation, cubic convolution, sinc x)
Digital mosaicing
Classification: density slice, box classification, maximum likelihood and minimum distance algorithms. Supervised and unsupervised training techniques
Spectral coincident plots and decision tree classification
Advanced image processing techniques: principal component analysis and formation of eigen images
Band arithmetic
De-correlation stretch
Selection of appropriate image processing system and planning digital processing sequences
Current classification methods.

On completion of this course the delegate will be able to:

Identify a wide range of image processing techniques
Explain the purpose of each process and the underlying mathematical principles
Select appropriate image processing sequences to achieve predetermined objectives
Operate and manage an image processing system
Integrate image processing techniques into applications of remote sensing
