I would like to perform an image analysis of deposits on a band of 40meters*20centimers width. The goal
is to get 160 images of 25cm (without recovery) along the 40meters to perform the analysis.
The images would be taken by moving the band with a crank below a box containing the image pickup device.
One solution could be to adjust each time the band and to take one by one all the photographies. However i think that
something based on video could be more efficient. Maybe I could take a video of the band and find a way to split this video in 160 images. Have you got some advices concerning this second possibility?
I see two ways for splitting the video : based on the running time (but this needs a constant speed of the band, difficult to get this by hand), or by pattern recognition (for example red lines on the band each 25cm). After this i suppose that i shoud extract the images of each sub-video and perform a kind of mosaicing to get my images...
In short, the process involved by this second possibility are not clear to me : is that even possible quite easily? How ImageJ could be involved in that?
Thanks for your help
