Digital image processing and analysis is a field that continues to experience rapid growth, with applications in many facets
of our lives. Areas such as medicine, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, communication systems, and space exploration
are just a few of the application areas. This book takes an engineering approach to image processing and analysis, including
more examples and images throughout the text than the previous edition. It provides more material for illustrating the concepts,
along with new PowerPoint slides. The application development has been expanded and updated, and the related chapter provides
step-by-step tutorial examples for this type of development. The new edition also includes supplementary exercises, as well
as MATLAB-based exercises, to aid both the reader and student in development of their skills.
