A java toolbox for wavelet based image denoising

Tuncer, Güney
Wavelet methods for image denoising have became widespread for the last decade. The effectiveness of this denoising scheme is influenced by many factors. Highlights can be listed as choosing of wavelet used, the threshold determination and transform level selection for thresholding. For threshold calculation one of the classical solutions is Wiener filter as a linear estimator. Another one is VisuShrink using global thresholding for nonlinear area. The purpose of this work is to develop a Java toolbox which is used to find best denoising schemes for distinct image types particularly Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. This can be accomplished by comparing these basic methods with well known data adaptive thresholding methods such as SureShrink, BayeShrink, Generalized Cross Validation and Hypothesis Testing. Some nonwavelet denoising process are also introduced. Along with simple mean and median filters, more statistically adaptive median, Lee, Kuan and Frost filtering techniques are also tested to assist wavelet based denoising scheme. All of these methods on the basis of wavelet models and some traditional methods will be implemented in pure java code using plug-in concept of ImageJ which is a popular image processing tool written in Java.


A new reactive method for processing web usage data
Bayır, Murat Ali; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, a new reactive session reconstruction method 'Smart-SRA' is introduced. Web usage mining is a type of web mining, which exploits data mining techniques to discover valuable information from navigations of Web users. As in classical data mining, data processing and pattern discovery are the main issues in web usage mining. The first phase of the web usage mining is the data processing phase including session reconstruction. Session reconstruction is the most important task of web usage mining...
Improving search result clustering by integrating semantic information from Wikipedia
Çallı, Çağatay; Üçoluk, Göktürk; Şehitoğlu, Onur Tolga; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Suffix Tree Clustering (STC) is a search result clustering (SRC) algorithm focused on generating overlapping clusters with meaningful labels in linear time. It showed the feasibility of SRC but in time, subsequent studies introduced description-first algorithms that generate better labels and achieve higher precision. Still, STC remained as the fastest SRC algorithm and there appeared studies concerned with different problems of STC. In this thesis, semantic relations between cluster labels and documents ar...
A MAP-Based Approach for Hyperspectral Imagery Super-Resolution
IRMAK, Hasan; Akar, Gözde; Yuksel, Seniha Esen (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-06-01)
In this paper, we propose a novel single image Bayesian super-resolution (SR) algorithm where the hyperspectral image (HSI) is the only source of information. The main contribution of the proposed approach is to convert the ill-posed SR reconstruction problem in the spectral domain to a quadratic optimization problem in the abundance map domain. In order to do so, Markov random field based energy minimization approach is proposed and proved that the solution is quadratic. The proposed approach consists of f...
A new technique : replace algorithm to retrieve a version from a repository instead of delta application
Otlu, Süleyman Onur; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
The thesis introduces a new technique that is an alternative method instead of applying deltas to literal file sequentially to retrieve a version from a repository. To my best knowledge; this is the first investigation about delta combination for copy/insert instruction type with many experimental results and conclusions. The thesis proves that the delta combination eliminates unnecessary I/O process for intermediate versions when delta application is considered, therefore reduces I/O time. Deltas are appli...
Improving interactive classification of satellite image content
Tekkaya, Gökhan; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Interactive classication is an attractive alternative and complementary for automatic classication of satellite image content, since the subject is visual and there are not yet powerful computational features corresponding to the sought visual features. In this study, we improve our previous attempt by building a more stable software system with better capabilities for interactive classication of the content of satellite images. The system allows user to indicate a few number of image regions that contain a...
