Examples of image analysis

Below is a list of examples of how Pixcavator has been used to analyze images in an enormous variety of fields.

Virtually all of the examples below solve real-life problems for our users.

Note that almost none of the analysis examples require prior image enhancement. While looking at the analyzed images, observe that the analysis settings are appended to the name of the original image (for example, cells_100_20.bmp is the image that displays the results of the analysis of cells.bmp with the settings: size = 100, contrast = 20). This way you can easily reproduce the results on your own. There are also screenshots that show the settings. For more see Pixcavator help.

Please feel free to use Pixcavator's screenshots in presentations, publications, reports, etc. Many users have done this previously and we appreciate that they give us the credit. For the legal details see Pixcavator's user's license and Terms and conditions.

There are several ways to approach this question.

First, you can determine if your images may be good candidates for analysis with Pixcavator by reading Images appropriate for analysis.

Second, you can consider these (overlapping) categories of examples classified according to the image analysis tasks:

  1. Counting
  2. Measuring
  3. Image statistics
  4. Calibration
  5. Locations
  6. Color analysis
  7. Customization
  8. 3D analysis

Third, see these categories of examples classified according to the field of application:

  1. Microscopy
  2. Material science
  3. Medicine
  4. Machine vision
  5. Maps
  6. Biology
  7. Physics
  8. Mobile
