educational project, WEB pipeline, image processing


Digital image processing is a means by which the valuable information in observed raw image data can be revealed. A web-based image processing pipeline was created un der the ambitious educational program Venus Transit 2004 (VT-2004). The active participants in the VT-2004 can ap ply the basic processing methods to the images obtained by their amateur telescopes and/or they can process an image observed at any observatory involved in the project. The processed result image is displayed immediately on the dis play. Above that all participants can follow the distance Sun-Venus centers computation performed at the profes sional observatory in the real time. There is a possibility to submit an image from their own observation into the database. It will be used for the distance Earth-Sun compu tation.
