Learning outcomes

To pass, the student should be able to

  • explain fundamental notions on computerised image analysis, such as digitizing, image enhancement, segmentation and classification of features;
  • use methods for image compression, distance computation, frequency analysis, etc.
  • use software (MATLAB) for implementing algorithms for solving image analysis problems;
  • analyse and outline the steps necessary to solve a realistic image analysis problem;
  • give examples of applications in research and industry where image analysis is used.


Representation of images in computers. Image types. Sampling. Image coding and compression.Image processing and image restoration. Point operators. Fundamentals of frequency analysis.
