The problem of bacteria characterization from images acquired in microscopy is considered. The proposed approach consists of four consecutive steps: 1) images enhancement ; 2) segmentation based on Watershed algorithm ; 3) optimization of the initial segmentation; 4) bacteria quantification using a template matching procedure. Additionally, a modified… (More)
We present preliminary investigation of compression of segmented 3D seismic volumes for the rendering purposes. Promising results are obtained on the base of discrete cosine transforms and SPIHT coding scheme.
