Feature Extraction & Image Processing for Computer Vision

Mark S. Nixon and Alberto S. Aguado

Welcome to the homepage for Feature Extraction & Image Processing for Computer Vision, 3nd Edition. Here you'll find extra material for the book and many links we use for image processing and computer vision.

The Third Edition is out Sep 2012 and is being marketed on Amazon. Here's the new contents - it's much more up-to-date in terms of image processing, low-level feature extraction and high-level feature extraction with many other improvements throughout. There is also a new Chapter on moving object extraction, tracking and description, and a new appendix on colour models. The tutorial and support material has been extended and refined as necesary and as well as the new chapters, new material has been added including SIFT, SURF, HoG, Viola Jones, Haar wavelets and Local Binary Patterns.
