Catalog Description 

Digital image processing is a fascinating subject in several aspects. Human beings perceive most of the information about their environment through their visual sense. While for a long time images could only be captured by photography, we are now at the edge of another technological revolution which allows image data to be captured, manipulated, and evaluated electronically with computers. With breathtaking pace, computers are becoming more powerful and at the same time less expensive, so that widespread applications for digital image processing emerge. In this way, image processing is becoming a tremendous tool for analyzing image data in all areas of natural science. For more and more scientists digital image processing will be the key to study complex scientific problems they could not have dreamed of tackling only a few years ago. A door is opening for new interdisciplinary cooperation merging computer science with the corresponding research areas.
