Image Analysis/Processing 2003 Readers’ Choice Finalist: Matrox Imaging Library
Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a programming library that offers an extensive set of optimized functions for image capture, processing, analysis, display and archiving. The Edge Finder tool performs feature extraction and analysis and can be used in applications as varied as defect detection, finding objects with significant deformity or finding simple shapes quickly. Once extracted, edges can be measured, analyzed and sorted in a manner that is independent or dependent on one another. It can also be used as a plug-in for the Geometric Model Finder; results can be used to define a model instead of a new image. The Optical Character Recognition module features an interactive Windows utility for font definition and experimentation and includes a string locator. In addition, the OCR module supports OCRA, OCRB and MICR fonts.
