Using Python & OpenCV to Analyze Airborne Particles on a Slide Microscope | #citizenscience via @PublicLab

Very cool initiative from Public Lab using OpenCV (open-source computer vision software) to analyze images taken from a slide microscope:

Following the Jan 9th air quality open call I wanted to see what can be done with a microscope slide image of airborne particles. Inspired by the work started by Mathew and Stevie a couple of years ago I set out to try and get a similar process running on Python using openCV and skimage. Based on an old tutorial to detect coins I repurposed it for a single slide example. Once more example images are obtained this process could be made more robust, could also be a great candidate for DL!
