Around 81,000 to 138,000 people die every year. This research uses image processing technic to make the identification system of snake bites whether venomous or non-venomous. The method used in this system is Active Contour Model and Support Vector Machine. By using these methods, the highest accuracy is obtained in the best of SVM kernel, on RBF kernel and Polynomial kernel.
