Histogram Equalization. To transfer the gray levels so that the histogram of the resulting image is equalized to be a constant: The purposes: • To equally use all . HISTOGRAM EQUALIZATION. (Continuous case). • The gray levels in an image can be viewed as random variables in the interval [0, 1] and their pdf calculated. Histogram Equalization is a contrast enhancement technique in the image . Next, define the respective probability density function (pdf) of the sub-image XL .

This application note describes a method of imaging processing that allows medical images to have better contrast. This is attained via the histogram of the. PDF | Image enhancement is the process of adjusting digital images so that the results are more Image enhancement can be done by Histogram equalization. Background. To understand histogram equalization, one must first understand the concept of contrast in an image. The contrast is defined as the difference in.

Eric Wu 12 Jul Usama KHan. Developed in the s for computer graphics applications, HSL and HSV are used today in color pickers, in image editing software, and less commonly in image analysis and computer vision. Later, we consider a discrete formulation and allow pixel values to be in the interval [0, L-1]. The main purpose of the RGB color model is for the sensing, representation, and display of images in electronic systems, such as televisions and computers, though it has also been used in conventional photography.

For reasons that will become obvious shortly, we assume that the transformation function T r satisfies the following conditions: The requirement in a that T r be single valued is needed to guarantee that the inverse transformation will exist, and the monotonicity condition preserves the increasing order from black to white in the output image. A transformation function that is not monotonically increasing could result in at least a section of the intensity range being inverted, thus producing some inverted intensity levels in the output image.

While this may be a desirable effect in some cases, that is not what we are after in the present discussion. Finally, condition b guarantees that the output intensity levels will be in the same range as the input levels. Figure 3. Figure 10 - Intensity level transformation function that is both single valued and monotonically increasing.

One of the most fundamental descriptors of a random variable is its probability density function PDF. Let pr r and ps s denote the probability density functions of random variables rand s, respectively. A basic result from an elementary probability theory is that, if pr r and T r are known and satisfies condition a , then the probability density function ps s of the transformed variable s can be obtained using a rather simple formula: In the discrete form the equation 1.

Where s is the new intensity level and is replaced to the r for histogram equalized image.

For histogram Table: Spline Interpolation: The intensity levels of the image are mapped to new intensity level by transformation function.

The curve of transformation function passes through fixed points defined by the user. The curve between the fixed points are cubic function and is determined by spline interpolation. In the mathematical field of numerical analysis, spline interpolation is a form of interpolation where the interpolant is a special type of piecewise polynomial called a spline.

Spline interpolation is often preferred over polynomial interpolation because the interpolation error can be made small even when using low degree polynomials for the spline.

Spline interpolation avoids the problem of Runge's phenomenon, in which oscillation can occur between points when interpolating using high degree polynomials. Figure 11 - Interpolation of points 5. The Data Points: The Spline: Each piece of the spline must interpolate the points. From one subinterval to the next, the left and right slopes of the spline must match. From one subinterval to the next, the left and right curvature second derivative of the spline must match.

Require no curvature at the ends. Left interpolation conditions: Curvature matching conditions: We need bj, cj, and dj. Eliminate dj: System of linear equations for cj: The forward sweep consists of modifying the coefficients as follows, denoting the new modified coefficients with primes: And The solution is then obtained by back substitution: The algorithm has implemented on five images and the output results are shown below with their histogram.

The enhanced images conclude the working of color conversion, Histogram equalization and spline interpolation algorithm. These algorithms are simple as well as robust, which can be easily implemented at low-level image enhancement technics.

The poor images are enhanced to better quality of images because of increase in suitable amount of contrast in the image. Hence, the output images gives us a better visual stimulus and these images can be used further for higher level image processing like edge detection, noise filtering, smoothening.

Future Scope: In future the contrast enhancement technic can be integrated to the algorithm used in the camera for real-time contrast enhancement for better display.

Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithm and Machine Learning algorithm can be used to enhance contrast in the images captured by the satellite in real-time. References 1.
