Extracting Histogram of Gradients with OpenCV

Besides the feature descriptor generated by SIFT, SURF, and ORB, as in the previous post, the Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) is another feature descriptor you can obtain using OpenCV. HOG is a robust feature descriptor widely used in computer vision and image processing for object detection and recognition tasks. It captures the distribution of […]

Image Feature Extraction in OpenCV: Edges and Corners

In the world of computer vision and image processing, the ability to extract meaningful features from images is important. These features serve as vital inputs for various downstream tasks, such as object detection and classification. There are multiple ways to find these features. The naive way is to count the pixels. But in OpenCV, there […]

How to Transform Images and Create Video with OpenCV

When you work with OpenCV, you most often work with images. However, you may find it useful to create animation from multiple images. Chances are that showing images in rapid succession may give you different insight or it is easier to visualize your work by introducing a time axis. In this post, you will see […]

Using ggplot2 for Visualization in R

One of the most popular plotting libraries in R is not the plotting function in R base, but the ggplot2 library. People use that because it is flexible. This library also works using the philosophy of “grammar of graphics”, which is not to generate a visualization upon a function call, but to define what should […]
