Image taxonomy in Milena



Milena is the generic image processing library of the Olena platform. The library aims at remaining simple while providing high performances. The introduction of new image types based on graphs has revealed some design problems limit ing its genericity. For instance, we have always considered that "images have points"; yet some images have sites that are not points (but edges, facets, and even sets of points). Another erroneous assumption was to consider that sites are localized by a vector (e.g., (x,y) in the 2D plane), which cannot be true when sites are not point-wise. Therefore there was a need to reconsider the image types and their underlying images properties.In this seminar, we will present a new image taxonomy that solves those issues.
