Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) Tools

2D calibration

Calibration is a routine requirement for imaging. MIL X includes a 2D Calibration tool to convert results (i.e., positions and measurements) from pixel to real-world units and vice-versa. The tool can compensate results, and even an image itself, for camera lens and perspective distortions. Calibration is achieved using an image of a grid or chessboard target, or just a list of known points. Calibration can be achieved from a partially visible target. MIL X also supports encoded targets that relay target characteristics—including coordinate system origin and axes—to further automate the calibration process.
