Vector graphic and image modeling research earns $499K NSF grant

 

Professor Hong Qin from the Department of Computer Science (CS) will use NSF funding to research novel methods for vectorization of arbitrary natural images and its applications.

Vector graphics are an important part of web design and image presentation. Affecting anything from image resolution, network bandwidth and animation, vector graphics are comprised of paths and mathematical commands instead of pixels which are found in your standard jpg images. Vector graphics offer a compact solution without sacrificing image representation.
