Image analyzing definition & examples

May 4, 2022

What is image analysis?

Image analysis is the extraction of important information from images via digital image processing techniques. It's the process of acquiring information from images. Image analysis tasks can either be very simple or can be complicated. It can be as simple as scanning a barcode, or as complex as PiP. Image analysis includes tasks such as identifying shapes, detecting edges or counting objects.

Computers are used for the analysis of large amounts of data, for tasks that require complex computation, or for the extraction of quantitative information. Another image analysis tool is the human visual cortex which is highly efficient for extracting higher-level information including medicine, security, and remote sensing. The human analyst cannot be replaced by computers and due to this, many important image analysis tools are inspired by human visual models.

Techniques in Image Analysis

There are many techniques that can be used in automatically analyzing images. Each technique is useful for a range of tasks. Some examples of image analysis techniques are:

  • 2D and 3D Object Recognition
  • Video Tracking
  • Optical Flow
  • Image Segmentation
  • Motion Detection
