Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel image enhancement technique suitable for infrared image, dualistic sub-image enhancement based on two-dimensional histogram analysis and histogram equalization, is put forward. Firstly, the infrared image is segmented to two sub-images according to the correlation between the neighboring pixels, which is based on the two-dimensional histogram analysis. Then each sub-image is enhanced based on histogram equalization. At last, we get the result after the processed sub-images are composed into one image. The experiment result indicates that the algorithm can not only enhance image information effectively but also keep the fine part of original infrared image well. And this algorithm eliminates the drawback of traditional histogram equalization that the fine part is not easy to control and protect.
