Description

PhenoVein is dedicated to automated segmenting and analyzing leaf veins of images acquired with different imaging modalities (microscope, macro photography, etc.) including options for comfortable manual correction. Advanced image filtering emphasizes veins from the background and compensates for local brightness inhomogeneities. The most important traits being calculated are total vein length, vein density, piecewise vein lengths and widths, areole area and skeleton graph statistics like the number of branching or ending points. For the determination of vein widths, a model based vein edge estimation approach has been implemented.
