You might try searching "comparators"; there might be some with microprocessor or computer interfacing.

You don't mention what format your images are in or what size they are. However, have you considered using a CAD tool?

Thanks for your comment, Image format is either jpg or bmp, can you explain how CAD tool will help? My purpose is to capture a image of any component with the help of CCD camera & measure it geometrically with the software.

All CAD packages have dimension tools (both linear and angular).

AutoCAD is the industry standard CAD package, but, is very expensive.

The file extension for AutoCAD drawings is DWG, and, most CAD programs will do a reasonable job of importing DWG files, but, they invariably lose the scaling when they import.

AutoCAD LT (lite) is the 2D version of AutoCAD but is still horrendously expensive.

DoubleCAD XT is an extremely good 2D CAD package with the "look and feel" of AutoCAD LT plus some of the advantages of its "sister" product TurboCAD. You can get the free version here:-

http://www.doublecad.com/Products/DoubleCADXTv3/tabid/1100/Default.aspx

Your big problem is getting the correct scale into your CAD drawing. If I was you I would include an object of known exact size in the photo.

Once you have a .jpg you can import it into open office (text) then export it to a pdf; use aide pdf to DXF converter to get a CAD file then import that into DoubleCAD.

Now you will need to scale the whole drawing so that your reference object is the correct size. Finally use the dimension tools in DoubleCAD to do the measurements.

You should have a go with ImageJ, it's OpenSource and has many existing plugins (try the Measure and Label one for a start)

Wow: impressive free software package, with excellent documentation.

I'm not sure yet how relevant it is to the OPs (Original Poster's) problem, but Good Answer anyway.

Yes indeed it depends on the OPs starting point. I used it quite a lot to analyse Microscopy images while at University to measure nanosize features. You can adjust the image properties (sharpness, greyscale...), set your own scale and automate the process by creating shortcuts. It can create a list and label the items on the image, good when you do 100+ measurements from 1 image. The documentation is excellent and with the wide variety of plugins, you could tailor them for your particular applications as suggested by the OP maybe.

I have to measure image captured through a CCD camera, it could be a jpg or any image file. I want to know if there is any development tool for creating any image analysis software.

Aide pdf to DXF converter is less than $200

http://www.aidecad.com/pdf-to-dxf-converter.html?gclid=CPSctJauoKYCFQ8f4Qod_3aRaA

I have used the trial version and am very impressed.

There are lots of free ways to get a pdf from almost any kind of image.

Of course you would need to "scale" the resulting drawing.

As for myself, I used to do tiwh image processing work with the help of a fine 3rd party image processing SDK. It is just one of many but I do appreciate its simple way of processing. Even though I only tried its free trial package to process images and didn′t check the cost and licensing conditions, it worked great for me. Besides, this site gives a lot of tutoials for processing different kinds of document and image formats. Share with you. And I hope you success. Good luck.



Best regards,
Arron

Try Foxit, there's a free version. I use for measuring drawings in PDF, angles, lengths etc.

I visited Raster Edge and it looked complicated, please write about your experiences with it.
