With dedicated applications and easy to develop image analysis protocols, Image-Pro supports a broad range of easy to implement solutions
The analysis or management of natural resources is a wide-ranging area of study and may be a difficult and demanding undertaking. Analyzing images from a laboratory microscope or an underwater submersible platform to aerial photography, Image-Pro provides tools and tailored solutions to meet your research needs.
Determining the number of plants in a field or in a nursery provides important information on inventory and crop yields. Instead of counting by hand or making an estimate, specific numbers of plants can be determined and reported in a consistent fashion.
Through a few simple steps, Image-Pro’s Otolith Applications will guide the user through the detection, measurement, editing of otolith and scale growth lines. The annotated growth marks may be saved for documentation and the corresponding data may be included with a report or exported to Excel.
Image-Pro’s image processing and analysis capabilities, including Smart Segmentation and Fourier Descriptor, make it easy to accurately measure and quantify gross anatomic features of aquatic species. Image-Pro’s ability to acquire and organize large data sets enables scientists to conduct multi-year and multi-studies.
Egg and Larvae counting with morphological analysis
Based on an intuitive step by step workflow, Image-Pro allow the user find, measure and classify fish eggs. Once the workflow has been developed, it may saved and recalled for future analysis sessions to both save time and ensure consistent experimental analysis.
Fisheries & Aquaculture

Even under difficult and challenging imaging conditions in the field, Image-Pro’s flexibility in the use of Machine Learning allows for the easy detection and analysis of juvenile fish.
Population Analysis (Wildlife Management)

Wildlife management, such as the study of migratory birds, present unique opportunities to analyze populations in a fast and efficient manner.
The image analysis capabilities of Image-Pro when combined with automated image analysis have proven to provide time saving methods when analyzing a few images to hundreds of images at a time.
Plant disease and its’ study, are import in both agriculture and forestry. Disease areas can be readily analyzed using Smart Segmentation. Percent area of infection data can be quickly generated and reported in either excel data tables or a report.
Remote Sensing and Aerial Photography
Remote sensing and the use of aerial images combine to provide a broad context of vegitation, river morphology and features which can be analyzed.

The scientific study of insects provides a challenge when imaging insect structure in detail. With the additional Capture Module and the Live Extended Depth of Field capability, detailed in focus images can be captured.
When capturing large out of the depth of field images, Image-Pro offers the additional benefit of not requiring a motorized z-stepper.
