Abstract: PlantArthroDB is an interactive web-based database management software that stores identification records, traditional knowledge, extracted phytochemical data, captured images and videos, and interaction records of plant and arthropod species found in Mt. Isarog Natural Park. The system incorporates interaction visualization and plant species rank scoring.
Generating Screened Manga Sketches from Colored Photographs
Raphael Henry M. Garay and Allan A. Sioson
Abstract: In this paper, we show how edge detection and screening techniques are applied on an input colored image to produce an image that resembles traditional Manga sketch. The input images are colored pages taken from manga artworks or photographs. The overall technique developed is implemented in C++ and OpenCV library.
