Lock to certain image location?

asked 2018-07-03 16:15:14 -0500

Hi everybody,

I was wondering if there was any way to lock a passed in image so that it doesn't change the location the next time the image is taken?

Im working in a microscopy lab and we're taking pictures of images that are on the nanometer scale for image processing. It's rather difficult to get back to the same location of the original image after the microscope has been moved. My idea is to use some sort of location reference and then lock the image to it. Is this possible in OpenCV?

What i understood:

  • You are working in a lab
  • Your lab is taking pictures with microscopes on a very small scale
  • Sometimes the microscope is moved
  • ???? <insert problem="" description="" here="">

Can you describe better what you actually want to do or what you want to improve - from a "user" perspective. I don't really understand it.

Well you asked for marker / location reference. I can only guess but maybe take a look at this https://docs.opencv.org/3.4.1/d5/dae/...

Problem description:

I would like to go back to a given location using a marker.

I'll look into the thread you linked as well, seems to be along the lines of what I need! Thank you!

You are welcome - i am usualy good with basic understanding / analyzing / guessing XD But please be more precise / concrete next time.

I would like to go back to a given location using a marker Is the way to go ^^ Good luck with your task!
