Learning outcomes

The course presents different algorithmic tools that can be used to analyse spatially referenced data as images voxelized volumes, captured surfaces in order to perform measurements, recognize objects and derive semantic interpretation of the acquired scene.
Different examples of data will be presented, as well as potential applications and several tools for recovering object location and shapes, aligning different data, visualize spatial information and analysing properties of detected objects will be presented.


Images and volumetric data: acquisition devices, applications in different contexts
Visualization of 3D data
Image and volume segmentation: methods based on classifiers, spatial priors, graphs. Interactive segmentation
Contour/surface based segmentation
Model based segmentation
Image and contour/surface registration, methods based on feature matching and methods based on volume comparison
Shape analysis: algorithms and descriptors
Texture analysis: algorithms and descriptors
