An Open Source Framework for Underwater Image Processing

VIAME


Video and Image Analytics for Marine Environments

In cooperation with NOAA’s Automated Image Analysis Strategic Initiative (AIASI), Kitware has developed VIAME, an open-source system for analysis of underwater video and imagery for fisheries stock assessment. VIAME will enable rapid, low-cost integration of new algorithmic modules, datasets and workflows.

Why VIAME?


  • Open Source basis fosters easy collaboration and transparent development for the widest possible community involvement.
  • Multiple Baseline Algorithms allows users to train detector, classification, and size estimation models based on varying amounts of training data.
  • Modular Dataflow Architecture enables straightforward integration of a wide variety of third party analytics, libraries and tools.
  • Based on KWIVER, the Kitware Video and Image Exploitation and Retrieval toolkit, which includes a pipelined image processing framework, baseline algorithms, and wrappers around algorithms from the broader computer vision community.
