[SOLVED] Can IM analyze 3D pictures?

Discuss digital image processing techniques and algorithms. We encourage its application to ImageMagick but you can discuss any software solutions here.

[SOLVED] Can IM analyze 3D pictures?

Post by Winfried »

Hello,

I'm a total newbie when it comes to image analysis, but I'd like to write an application for smartphones (Android and/or iPhone) for the medical profession. I need to find a good library that can analyse pictures taken with the smartphone.

The goal is to analyze pictures to determine an object's size (length, width, depth), its colors, over a period of several weeks, which means that the shooting angle and colors will be slightly different in each shot.

Is ImageMagick a good solution for this? If not, what libraries should I check, free or commercial?

Thank you.

I doubt that IM will be a good match for your requirements. It has limited feature analysis. I have no idea what to suggest to you.

Take a look at OpenCV, Open Source Computer Vision.

Good thought, Werty!

I had forgotten about OpenCV. It has lots of feature detection and analysis functions.

I don't know about the licensing issues (or software issues), but it would really be great if IM could link to OpenCV as delegate library or integrate it into IM more directly! That would add a lot of needed feature analysis functions into IM.
