Infrared and thermal images have been used widely in the different forensics and security applications. Such images show the temperature difference between different objects and scene background. One of the drawbacks of such images is low contrast and noisy images which should be enhanced. This paper presents a new thermal image contour detection algorithm using the modified snake algorithm. The segmentation algorithm based on the image enhancement and the modified model of active contours based on regions, taking into account the calculation of the anisotropic gradient. Some presented experimental results illustrate the performance of the proposed cloud system on real thermal images in comparison with the traditional methods.
