The Wolfram Solution for

Image Processing

Drag and drop images into lines of code or equations; apply sophisticated image processing algorithms; and analyze, visualize, and generate interactive applications—all in one system, with one integrated workflow.

The Wolfram image processing solution seamlessly integrates specialized capabilities—like state-of-the-art 2D and 3D image processing functions, easy import of data, and an interactive interface—with the speed and performance benefits of GPU computation, parallel processing, and out-of-core technology.

Does your current tool set have these advantages?

  • Built-in functionality for complete image processing workflow
    Matlab requires multiple extra-cost toolboxes for image processing
  • Automatic interactive interface construction to easily manipulate and analyze images
    Unique to Mathematica
  • Conveniently drag and drop images directly into the input line to apply image processing functions
    Unique to Mathematica
  • Application interface independent of the underlying image resolution for easy resolution change—up to 64-bit—without changing code
    Matlab requires modification of the code to change image resolution
  • Integrated environment for interactive visual workflow
    C, C++, and other languages require you to switch between a graphical window and text input to visualize and process images
  • Tight integration of the image processing framework with the core Mathematica system and more than 20 built-in application areas, such as GIS and statistics
