I am a CHED scholar taking up a Master's Degree. I will be using the photos for my thesis. I will apply image processing techniques to identify disease or to classify abaca. I don't have the approved title of the study yet because I am still looking for a data source to be used. I wanted to check first the images before I will start conducting the study. I cannot present the title of my study to the panel without securing first the data.

If you require any further information, please let me know. You can contact me through my mobile number 09094145550.

Hoping for your positive response about this matter.

Thank you.
