The Master Of The UNIVERSE!

Or, at least, OpenCV. That’s right my faithful readers, I have managed to install it. It took me many days of pain and suffering, but It finally works with Microsoft Visual C++ 2010.

In other, less exciting news, I have been half heartedly working on a function to find the local maxima of an image. This would be easy (look for a change in gradient in both the x and y direction), but the image is full of disgusting noise, leading me to search for a more creative solution. Perhaps some pre-processing is needed? Or maybe some kind of… find a maximum and then ignor any nearby maxima. Could try filling in every change of gradient point, and then convolving with Gauss, and then repeating. Who knows!
