Hi,

Is there any software out there that can count a cattle head numbers? Like, I take a serie os pictures and put these pictures in a computer and a software counts the numbers based on image recognition? I don't need real time recognition... 

Thanks

If the cattle stand out from the background, you could use a program like ImageJ and a plug-in to count the cattle. One of ImageJ's primary functions is to count biological cells on a slide, but you should be able to adapt that to count anything that shows up as a discrete blob.

That was a good suggestion, I looked at ImageJ and will try it. Take a look the kind of image I will have, do you think its worth a try looking at ImageJ? 

Thanks

You could also use Amazon's Mechanical Turk.  You upload the pictures and pay someone like 15 cents to count the cows. You will get much more accurate numbers.

The cattle show up quite well against the ground, so I think there's a good chance you could get ImageJ to work. Maybe not 100% accuracy all the time, though - would depend on the contrast, the presence of confusing features (rocks and shrubs), and whether the cattle were close to each other or not.

Can you color or tag the animals with markings to assist the CV process?

OpenCV in C/C++ or Python. Check OpenRelief Git. The are writing code for OpenCV to recognize humans for drone to search and rescue use Arduplane + Raspberry Pi.

I'm testing a IMAGEJ a software that is used for cells and other microscopic components so I think its a good start. I could count 200 cattle with a margin of error of less than 4% the program is simple for simple images but it can be a pain in the ass when you get images much more complex. I'm trying to count trees right now because they;re nuch complex...

Thats it

Hello Antonius, 

did you have success counting trees? could you provide a sample of your images to see what would the requirements of the images for automatic tree countings?

thanks,

Inti

Did you find any software that finds no of crops from aerial image?

Hi everyone I am in the process of working on an application that can initially stitch georeferenced images and then analyse these images for various uses like counting crops or counting headcount of animals...and crop health..I would appreciate it if anyone can provide me georeferenced images that I can use to teSt and experiment with while building the application.

Hi Agriavionics, Do you have an Application for counting Cattle from an Orthoimage (Geotiff ) generated from drone images flying over a field with cattle? Do you have an  example ? Thx.
