I am calling two for loops to load a set of map png images into matlab. I then want to stitch them together. 5x5 at the moment.
I was previously setting each image loaded to, img1 img2 etc, and then stitching them together using
str1 = sprintf('F:\\Mapping\\%g\\%g,x,y); A1 = exist(str1); if A1 == 2; img1 = imread(str1); else img1 = imread('F:\Mapping\No_File.png')l end
and then stitching them all together as so:
map = [img1,img2,img3,img4,img5;img6... etc];
In order to simplify, I would like to run a for loop and do the following:
for m = x-2:1:x+2 for n = y - 2:1:y+2 str = sprintf('F:\\Mapping\\%s\\%g\\%g\\%g\\%g\\%g.png',mstring,z,xi,m,yi,n); A = exist(str); if A == 2; img = imread(str); else img = imread('F:\Mapping\No_File.jpg'); end
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% end end
except I'm not sure now how to write the map = [img1,img2... etc part as obviously I am changing the value of img each loop.
How would I write the img to the appropriate part of the map image? Is there a way?
stitchxstart = (m-x+2)*256 + 1; stitchxend = (m+1-x+2)*256;
stitchystart = (n-y+2)*256 + 1; stitchyend = (n+1-y+2)*256;
and then write as:
map(stitchxstart:stitchxend,stitchystart:stitchyend,:) = img;
as I know the outcome will be a 1280*1280*3... but it obviously doesn't work... not quite sure how to write it to the map variable in the correct manner.
Thanks in advance....

Try this code:
c1 = rand(5,5,3) cStitched = c1; % Initialize with the first one. subplot(2,2,1); imshow(c1); % Now tack on the others. for k = 1 : 10 c2 = rand(5,5,3); subplot(2,2, 2); imshow(c2); cStitched = [cStitched, c2]; subplot(2,1, 2); imshow(cStitched); % Prompt user if they want to continue. promptMessage = sprintf('Do you want to Continue processing,\nor Cancel to abort processing?'); button = questdlg(promptMessage, 'Continue', 'Continue', 'Cancel', 'Continue'); if strcmp(button, 'Cancel') return; end end
That should be enough to give you a start. You can use a semicolon instead of a comma to tack on vertically. So what I'd do is use the above code to make a full length "row" of 5 by 1280 pixels, then use the semicolon with the same concept
cStitched = [cStitched; oneRow];
To tack on that row vertically.
For the stitching to be general and robust, it's not easy. For example to handle different kinds of images (color, monochrome), different sizes, where they're placed if they different sizes, etc. This File Exchange submission handles all that very well with maximum flexibility: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/25797-stitch
stitch = zeros(1280,1280,3); tempstitch = zeros(1280,1280,3); j = 0; for m = x-2:1:x+2 i = 0; for n = y-2:1:y+2 fprintf('M: %g N: %g\ni: %g j: %g\n',m,n,i,j); str = sprintf('F:\\Mapping\\%s\\%g\\%g\\%g\\%g\\%g.png',mstring,z,xi,m,yi,n); A = exist(str); if A == 2; img = imread(str); else img = imread('F:\Mapping\No_File.jpg'); end if i == 0 tempstitch = img; elseif i > 0 tempstitch = [tempstitch;img]; end i = i + 1; end if j == 0 stitch = tempstitch; elseif j > 0; stitch = [stitch,tempstitch]; end j = j + 1; end
