Microcomputer-Based Interactive Image Processing

  • Fredrick M. Cady
  • Robert M. Hodgson
Part of the International Series on Microprocessor-Based Systems Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 1)


An analysis of interactive image processing systems is presented. The hardware and software of a microcomputer-based system is described. Typical applications are given. The system design of a muItispectral remote sensing system is given and the designs of two new advanced microcomputer-based systems are shown.
