Introduction to tools for image analysis

An introduction to the tools for image analysis activity from the course introduction to image analysis for plant phenotyping

Welcome back to Week 2 of the course.

This week we look at using the Fiji tool, both to manually measure some features in some plant images, and also to look at ways we can start to automate some measures. The techniques we are looking at here focus on something called thresholding. This is a very simple image processing technique and only works with particular kinds of images. In later weeks we will take a look at some more complex approaches you can investigate.

We finish the week by looking at some ways to automate tasks, and starting to introduce some coding tools, some of which we will use next week.
