Worksheets for Feature Extraction & Image Processing

Mark S. Nixon and Alberto S. Aguado

In a way, these are the electronic forms of the book, in Mathcad and Matlab. They miss out on much of the theoretical explanation (especially the Matlab ones) as well as many of the pictorial descriptions, but give you working versions of many of the techniques described in the book. Due to problems with Mathcad, all worksheets have been saved in html, so you can definitely see them. The worksheets are in two forms: Mathcad2001 (.mcd) and Matchcad14 (.xmcd) There is a student version of Matlab, available at low cost.

* Complete set (23MB rar file) of current Mathcad worksheets (Mathcad14, Mathcad2001) and images. If you can't get them working, there are HTML versions.
* edges.m, maxsupr.m, cont.m and NextPixel.m
Zipped (2KB) Matlab book edge code
* Complete set (~50KB) of current Matlab scripts and images
Complete (zipped) set of Worksheets and some new Fourier descriptors (Matlab)
* Somewhat stung by a (first edition) review on Amazon ("the book only contains Mathcad" ... doh!) that one of the worksheets didn't work, we checked them all out: they work perfectly (as they have for years now). Note that vision techniques are not a panacea - the wrong set of parameters can make a technique fail easily.
