Mahotas – Median filter
In this article we will see how we can apply median filter to the image in mahotas. The median filter is a non-linear digital filtering technique, often used to remove noise from an image or signal. Such noise reduction is a typical pre-processing step to improve the results of later processing (for example, edge detection on an image).
In this tutorial we will use “lena” image, below is the command to load it.
Below is the lena image
In order to do this we will use mahotas.median_filter method
Syntax : mahotas.median_filter(img)
Argument : It takes image object as argument
Return : It returns image object
Note : Input image should be filtered or should be loaded as grey
In order to filter the image we will take the image object which is numpy.ndarray and filter it with the help of indexing, below is the command to do this
image = image[:, :, 0]
Below is the implementation
