Image Analysis Software
Image analysis software is used to enhance, identify or quantify features in an image by breaking down or applying digital image filters.
Video cameras record live-action scenes that are available for viewing via a stored or transmitted video feed. This allows the user to create a permanent and detailed chronicle of events. Video cameras record dozens of pictures (or frames) a second that when viewed in succession, clearly distinguish the translation of an object or person over time.
Scientific imagers are high resolution systems used to capture moving or still images.
Graphing and Visualization Software
Graphing and visualization software visually present abstract scientific data. The programs take numerical data and create (render) images for analysis.
Electron microscopes use a focused beam of electrons instead of light to "image" the specimen and gain information as to its structure and composition.
