Digital Imaging provides the essential skills and knowledge you need to produce high quality data for your daily private or commercial needs. In its most basic form, an image-informatics system must accurately store image data obtained from digital cameras with a wide range of imaging capabilities, along with accessory information (termed metadata), the acquisition system, and basic information about the user, location, date, and so on. The book offers an integral view of digital images introducing: image formats, digital cameras, storage solutions, visualization methods, image processing methods starting from image acquisition to the extraction of the data of interest. The book covers in addition hardware description, introduction into digital files, image data management, history and example from few disciplines where digital imaging plays essential role. This book can help you understand background of digital images including software tools for handling large amount of image data.
