thank you berak. admittantly, I kind of don't know how to run the samples in your link. I tried to use the cat xml in place of the lbpcascade used in the java installation here. it took me a while to realize I can't read, and that you not only said that I need to be using opencv 3.0, but also be using latent svm which as far as I can tell, is very different than the java guide I linked. If possible, could you point me in the right direction to finding out how to run the samples? thank you in advance.

2015-01-29 22:40:57 -0600 asked a question bounding rectangle for haar cascades

hello, sorry if this is a dumb question but for making cascades you must use positive images. i plan to use our own images, of an animal for an animal identification software, and according to the cascade tutorial (middle of the page), i must make a file that lists where the positive object is in the image. it says to label the x,y coordinates as well as the height and width of a bounding rectangle. i dont understand how i would get all those parameters manually and the tutorial doesn't seem to mention it either.

also, any advice on how i would get all those parameters as quickly as possible? thank you in advance.

i had the same issue. i am running on linux mint and the way i solved it was by changing the code to:

CascadeClassifier faceDetector = new CascadeClassifier("../resources/lbpcascade_frontalface.xml");

Mat image = Highgui.imread("../resources/lena.png");

for whatever reason, when i attempted to use the absolute path, it didnt work but this ended up working. i am basically just labelling the relative path to the png and xml file.( .. means go back a directory)

2015-01-20 22:03:41 -0600 asked a question Cat identification software

Hello, i am working on a project that involves identifying if there are any cats in an image. i found basically what i am looking for in this that was mentioned on the answer to this question.

the software requires Matlab which i have never used nor do i own it. The website has articles on the subject but seem very complicated and too technical for me to understand very easily.

i was hoping to get some guidance on where i should begin to look. any questions, or if more information is needed, please feel free to ask thank you in advance.
