Two years ago, when I was working for a plant biology lab I had to take a lot of pictures of plants growing in different conditions. Usually I begin taking pictures when a plant start leafing out and then went on tracking the process every 5 days until 20-25 days, depending on the plant. I have hundreds of them and each one contains different information.
I would like to work with this pictures for my final project trying to extract and display information from it in some way. This exercise will consist on the following; I will start looking for number of flowers and stem size. Certainly there is valuable information that can be extracted from the pictures but bearing in mind that I have only two weeks to do it I prefer to start with this two features for now.
My first idea is to display one plant onto one screen showing the sequence of the plant growing. For instance, the user can select one picture and get the number of flowers on each plant together with its stem size. The goal is to get this information for each one of the plants in order to have the possibility to compare them.
This is the kind of images I will use. In average I have 6 or 7 pictures for each plant. The idea is to display the pictures numbering the corresponding day in the plant’s cycle of life. By the way, the plant that you are looking at is called Arabidopsis thaliana, and it is a very common species used by scientific genetic research labs due to its rapid life cycle amongst other reasons.
