Python Mahotas – Introduction
Mahotas is a computer vision and image processing and manipulation library for Python. A library is a collection of functions and methods that allows you to perform many actions without having to write hundreds of lines of code. Mahotas includes many algorithms that operates with arrays, mahotas currently has over 100 functions for image processing and computer vision and is constantly growing.
Mahotas provides a good solution in finding patterns in the image for example “Where’s Wally Problem” can be solved easily using Mahotas.
How to install Mahotas :
