ChemImage to Hold Webinar on Spectral Data Processing Techniques for Questioned Document Examination


PITTSBURGH, Sept. 13, 2011 — Ever wonder what a spectrum is or how spectral data is acquired by and extracted from a hyperspectral image? ChemImage Corporation, a leader in hyperspectral imaging (HSI) technology, will host a webinar titled Spectral Image Processing — Enhancement of Document Examinations with Hyperspectral Imaging addressing these topics and more on Sept. 27 at 10 a.m. ET.

A follow up to Hyperspectral Imaging Basics for Forensic Applications, this one-hour webinar will present an introduction to spectral data, as well as some of the spectral and image processing methods available to help analyze and interpret the chemical information obtained when using HSI to examine questioned documents.

HSI, a method that combines digital imaging with spectroscopy to characterize materials, enables powerful ink discrimination capabilities for questioned document examination.  From traditional spectral image processing to more sophisticated multivariate statistical analysis techniques, HSI provides digital image, spectral and qualitative data that can be enhanced in a variety of ways.
