Micropaleontology, Ostracoda, Image Processing and Image J System.


Image J system was used to process the different images of Ostracoda. As this system is considered one of the modern and advanced computer systems used in image processing. Image processing is one of the main branches of computer science and has developed in the current era as a result of the amazing development in computer and communication technologies. Micropaleontology is the systematic study of the morphology and classification of the microscopic fossils and their ecological, and stratigraphic importance. A microscope is the greatest tool for studying a microfossil's distinctive features because it is often tiny. Images of the Ostracoda were taken from the city of Duhok in Iraqi Kurdistan, from the Kolosh Formation, in which these species were studied and diagnosed. Seven species of ostracoda were obtained: Gujaratella sp.  ,Acanthocythereis hystrixAlocopocythere gujaratensisAlocopocythere sp.1, Alocopocythere fossularis  Keijella sp.1 and Sulcostocythere sp.1 The size of the original image was found and many manipulations and calculations were made, including finding the edges of the image, finding the length, height, area, perimeter and mean of the ostracoda image, and drawing the histogram of the original image. These calculations help in processing and analyzing images. This helps to shorten the time and effort of researchers in the field of geology.
