Finding a bright object

Finally, to return to the challenge I laid out in the first of this series on image manipulation in R: can we do anything as cool in R as can be done in Mathematica? Like, for example, this illustration of how to search images of the surface of Mars...

Shiny is the new Cool

Several of you will probably have tried out the new Shiny package brought to the table by the RStudio guys This is just what I have been looking for and to my mind could provide a quantum leap in the use of R. There have been other packages addressing the need for web user interactivity

Images as Voronoi tesselations

This is probably the coolest-looking thing I’ve figured out how to do with raster images in R. Similar to (although not quite as impressive as) these images by Jeff Clark, I alter the simple k-means approach described in the previous post to...

Why [Not] Simulate?

Since we are in the “big data” Era, which means that a massive amount of data are made daily available by governments, institutions, and ordinary people like you and me—the importance of simulate data for “frequentists”, like myself, seems to fade. After all, once we have access to “real data”, why bother with non-real data,

"Dominant" Color Palettes with k-means

The idea of deriving color palettes from images has long been an interest of mine. There are places you can do this online, but it’s at least plausible that you might want to identify dominant colors programatically, for a large number of image...
