i'm looking in to a project where we need to develop a program (preferably in VB.NET) that scans an image and recognizes contours of several similar chapes. After the contours have been recognized i need to compute the measures of each shape and compute those numbers around a bit more.
I've been looking around on the net for libraries and example code of things that can do that, mostly the shape recognition and contour assignment, but i havent been very succesfull. So my question is, firstly is it actually possible to program this (i think it is, but hey i could be wrong), and secondly where could i find more information, libraries / controlles i would need and perhaps even same sample code on the subject?
Any help is appreciated!!
