Explain OpenCV Laplacian Transformation using java Example

JavaObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The Laplacian transform on an image highlights the regions where there is a rapid intensity change. Therefore, it is used to detect edges.

The Laplacian() method of the Imgproc class applies Laplacian Transform on the given image, this method accepts −

  • Two Mat objects representing the source and destination images.

  • Four integer variables representing the depth, size, scale and, delta values of the transform.

  • An integer value representing the border.

      Image img = HighGui.toBufferedImage(dst);
      WritableImage writableImage= SwingFXUtils.toFXImage((BufferedImage) img, null);
      //Setting the image view
