Guide To Template Matching With OpenCV: To Find Objects In Images

In the modern era of data science, various kinds of data types need to be dealt with. For example, an image as a data can tell us a lot of information. That information can lead us to a lot of visionary ideas. There are various techniques to deal with [image data](https://analyticsindiamag.com/comprehensive-guide-to-image-datasets/) and one of the most important techniques is to find out the content of an image. To extract a smaller object from a bigger or multi objects holder image using an object image is called template matching.

### Template Matching 

Template matching is a technique to extract or highlight the area or object of an image using a smaller image of that area. The basic goal of template matching is to find a smaller image or template into a larger image.  

As we can understand from the above statement, for template matching, we require two images one is a source image holding the template image under it, and the other is a template image which is required to find out from the source image.

Basically, in template matching, we find out the location in the source image of the template image. Here we can understand that it is required to have the size of the source image larger than the template image.

In this article, we are going to see how we can perform this using python. To perform template matching using python, we have got an open-source library called [OpenCV](https://analyticsindiamag.com/getting-started-with-opencv-in-python/) which we mainly use to analyze and augment image and video data. For a better understanding of the subject, let’s have an overview of openCV.

How to Find Ulimit For user on Linux

How can I find the correct ulimit values for a user account or process on Linux systems?

For proper operation, we must ensure that the correct ulimit values set after installing various software. The Linux system provides means of restricting the number of resources that can be used. Limits set for each Linux user account. However, system limits are applied separately to each process that is running for that user too. For example, if certain thresholds are too low, the system might not be able to server web pages using Nginx/Apache or PHP/Python app. System resource limits viewed or set with the NA command. Let us see how to use the ulimit that provides control over the resources available to the shell and processes.

CentOS Linux 8.2 Released and Here is How to Upgrade it

CentOS Linux 8.2 (2004) released. It is a Linux distribution derived from RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 8.2 source code. CentOS was created when Red Hat stopped providing RHEL free. CentOS 8.2 gives complete control of its open-source software packages and is fully customized for research needs or for running a high-performance website without the need for license fees. Let us see what’s new in CentOS 8.2 (2004) and how to upgrade existing CentOS 8.1.1199 server to 8.2.2004 using the command line.

How to configure AWS SES with Postfix MTA

How do I configure Amazon SES With Postfix mail server to send email under a CentOS/RHEL/Fedora/Ubuntu/Debian Linux server?

Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) is a hosted email service for you to send and receive email using your email addresses and domains. Typically SES used for sending bulk email or routing emails without hosting MTA. We can use Perl/Python/PHP APIs to send an email via SES. Another option is to configure Linux or Unix box running Postfix to route all outgoing emails via SES.

  • » Remove sendmail
  • » Install postfix
  • » Configuring postfix for SES
  • » Test postfix

Procedure to configure AWS SES with Postfix

Before getting started with Amazon SES and Postfix, you need to sign up for AWS, including SES. You need to verify your email address and other settings. Make sure you create a user for SES access and download credentials too.

Step 1 – Uninstall Sendmail if installed

If sendmail installed remove it. Debian/Ubuntu Linux user type the following apt command/apt-get command:

$`` sudo apt --purge remove sendmail

CentOS/RHEL user type the following yum command or dnf command on Fedora/CentOS/RHEL 8.x:

$`` sudo yum remove sendmail

$`` sudo dnf remove sendmail

Sample outputs from CentOS 8 server:
