Problems such as image classification, object detection and recognition rely on low-level feature descriptors to represent visual information. Several feature extraction methods have been proposed, including the Histograms of Oriented Gradients (HOG), which captures edge information by analyzing the distribution of intensity gradients and their directions.(More)
Processing images of underwater environments of Antarctic lakes is challenging due to poor lighting conditions, low saturation and noise. This paper presents a novel pipeline for dense point cloud scene reconstruction from underwater stereo images and video obtained with low-cost consumer recording hardware. Features in stereo frames are selected and(More)
Image denoising is a relevant issue found in diverse image processing and computer vision problems. It is a challenge to preserve important features, such as edges, corners and other sharp structures, during the denoising process. Wavelet transforms have been widely used for image denoising since they provide a suitable basis for separating noisy signal(More)
A central problem in image processing and computer vision is the computation of corresponding interest points in a given set of images. Usually, interest points are considered as independent elements described by some local information. Due to the limitations of such an approach, many incorrect correspondences can be obtained. A specific contribution of(More)
The use of scalar data has arisen in many image applications which obtain data from simulated experiments, range scanners and pho-togrammetry. Their different nature of acquisition influences the type of processing and the analysis that may be undertaken in tasks such as registration, retrieval and recognition of structures or objects. This paper presents a(More)
Image segmentation is a fundamental process in remote sensing applications, whose main purpose is to allow a meaningful discrimination among constituent regions of interest. This work presents a novel image segmentation method based on wavelet transforms for extracting a number of color and texture features from the images. Traditional feature extraction(More)
