DD2258 Introduction to Visualization, Computer Graphics and Image/Video Processing 7.5 credits

Introduktion till visualisering, datorgrafik och bild- och videobehandling

This course is taught as an extension of and alongside of Introduction to Visualization and Computer Graphics DH2320 and merely adds a component on image and video processing. All rules and conditions of DH2320 apply here as well: same lectures, same homework, same exam. Please look at DH2320 to get an overview of the main contents.

This course here adds two lectures on image and video processing and a graded homework assignment, which awards the additional 1.5hp over DH2320.

This course is graded A-F, whereas DH2320 is Pass/Fail.
