Hi everybody! greetings from a newby …
The attached image is a picture of dry seaweed particles (green), that has some contamination (other red seaweed species and some marine animals (bryozoans, mostly the yellowish to white particles). This particles are the result of a seaweed cultivation process, that following drying goes to milling… I’d like to evaluate the “quality” of my final product by describing the proportion of “contaminants” (whatever particle that is not the desired seaweed species) and I’d like to do it through image analysis. I’ve been playing around and watching videos and tutorials but I’m still not quite sure what the best process is… My goal is to be able to say for example: this products contains 95% target seaweed, 2% other seaweeds and 3% “fouling species”.
Can I get some advice? what would be the best tool, plugin or procedure to achieve my goal?
I know the picture is not the best, I could separate the particles manually to avoid overlapping if it’s necessary…
Also, of course I’d like to do this in batch, with several sample pictures as input, hoping to get automated processing and reporting. Am I asking too much???
Thanks in advance, I’ll be willing to give more info if needed.
