This first session will focus on algorithmic methods and their applications in image processing. Previously this has been the focus of this part of the lecture series, but this year I will focus more on large storage systems for images. For those interested in image processing in C++, please refer to previous years' course material: http://www.hki.uni-koeln.de/display_course/286
The next sessions will look into the difference between interactive and command line (batch) image processing as a basis for looking into how a digtital library for image collections can be built up, based on a real life example. This will include considerations of long term preservation and will lead into a discussion of the conceptual background for digital image handling in the humanities and cultural heritage.
