# Which is the most suitable programming language for image processing in scientific researches? [closed]

We are currently working on a platform (web application for a graduation final project we used mean stack) that able researchers to test default methods recognition (methods of Enhancement, Extraction, and matching ), add his own methods too (a script), compose a set of methods ( build a process of recognition) and visualize the outputs of each step. We want to know what a programming language is used the most for testing image processing in scientific articles.for the moment we are using Matlab for its simplicity.

Regards.

• python. Matlab is good but lack of open libs if you want to scale your applications/simulations. – AlexTP May 26 '17 at 12:17
• I'm sorry; while this definitely would be a fine topic for an evening discussion, it's too opinion-based and could only end up in a lot of controversial answers, but not a single definite answer. I'm closing this for being too opinionated, subjective. – Marcus Müller May 26 '17 at 12:32
• Welcome to SE.DSP! I tend to agree with Marcus, but I'll let others vote on whether or not to close. You can possibly re-word this to ask for pros and cons of staying with Matlab... but then I think it's more on-topic for SO itself rather than SE.DSP. – Peter K. May 26 '17 at 12:41
• @PeterK. Thank you , i know it is an opinion question , i just didn't know where to get the information. – ketimaBU May 26 '17 at 12:46
• What do you mean by mean stack: mean.io? – Laurent Duval May 26 '17 at 13:56

Your question as is has a very simple answer: "the best language is the one I use". Pros and Cons (P&C) would give some more value to it, as commented by Peter and Marcus. So, back to the topic, but concerning with P&C, here is my $\epsilon$...
