Mahotas – Speeded-Up Robust Features
  • Last Updated : 30 Jun, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the speeded up robust features of image in mahotas. In computer vision, speeded up robust features (SURF) is a patented local feature detector and descriptor. It can be used for tasks such as object recognition, image registration, classification, or 3D reconstruction. It is partly inspired by the scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT) descriptor. For this we are going to use the fluorescent microscopy image from a nuclear segmentation benchmark. We can get the image with the help of command given below

mahotas.demos.nuclear_image()

Below is the nuclear_image

In order to do this we will use surf.surf method

Syntax : surf.surf(img)

Argument : It takes image object as argument



Return : It returns numpy.ndarray

Example 1 :

filter_none

# importing various libraries
import mahotas
import mahotas.demos
import mahotas as mh
import numpy as np
from pylab import imshow, show
from mahotas.features import surf
  
# loading nuclear image
nuclear = mahotas.demos.nuclear_image()
  
# filtering iamge
nuclear = nuclear[:, :, 0]
  
# adding gaussian filter
nuclear = mahotas.gaussian_filter(nuclear, 4)
  
# showing iamge
print("Image")
imshow(nuclear)
show()
  
  
# getting Speeded-Up Robust Features
spoints = surf.surf(nuclear)
print("No of  points: {}".format(len(spoints)))

Output :

No of  points: 217

# loading iamge
img = mahotas.imread('dog_image.png')
  
     
# filtering the imagwe
img = img[:, :, 0]
      
# setting gaussian filter
gaussian = mahotas.gaussian_filter(img, 5)
   
# showing iamge
print("Image")
imshow(gaussian)
show()
  
  
# getting Speeded-Up Robust Features
spoints = surf.surf(gaussian)
print("No of  points: {}".format(len(spoints)))

Output :

No of  points: 364
