Webbased image processing provides a large number of algorithms which are common in the field of image recognition and image processing. The system allows you to configure, connect and run those algorithm - without any installation on your local system. The only tool you need to get started is your browser.

The single algorithms provided, such as Gaussian Smoothing or Hough Transformation for example, are wrapped into so called plugins. Each plugin defines an interaction interface for the particular algorithm it is wrapping. Different input and output slots are available each plugin. Those slots may be connected up to complete processing graphs in which a lot of plugins are involved. Additionally each plugin may have different parameters to be defined (for example the variance used in the Gaussian function is a parameter of Gaussian Smoothing).


Images are the source and target for each graph in webbased image processing. Therefore two special plugins are available to handle the input and output management: File Loader and File Saver.

Before you can view the results of the graph you have created or loaded, you need to select or upload the desired input images. You may use a the images provided by our lab or use our own images with the graphs. After the execution of a graph a dialog box containing the results will be show. After closing the box, the resulting data is available in each File Saver.

If you connect a plugin with a File Saver, please make sure u have the proper output format selected. You must choose between gray scale and color (more specific: RGB) images. Please be aware that the selected format must match the given image. Otherwise no output will be created.

The plugins may be moved using simple drag and drop. Just grab the plugin by clicking on its body and move it while holding down your mouse button. Release your mouse button to drop it at the desired location.


You may add the plugins you desire from the plugin menu and connect them the way you want. There is also a search functionality for plugins available. As soon as you have finished creating your own graph, just hit "run graph" to process the graph.

Are you ready to get started? Go directly to the graph editor.
