Objective This is the twenty-third one in the annual survey series of the yearly important bibliographies on image engineering in China. The purpose of this statistic and analysis work is mainly to capture the up-to-date development of image engineering in China, to provide a targeted means of literature searching facility for readers working in related areas, and to supply a useful recommendation for the editors of journals and potential authors of papers. Method Considering the wide distribution of related publications in China, 771 references on image engineering research and technique are selected carefully from 2 932 research papers published in 148 issues of a set of 15 Chinese journals. These 15 journals are considered as important journals in which papers concerning image engineering have higher quality and are relatively concentrated. Those selected references are classified first into 5 categories (image processing, image analysis, image understanding, technique application and survey), and then into 23 specialized classes according to their main contents (same as the last 12 years). Some analysis and discussions about the statistics made on the results of classifications by journal and by category are also presented, respectively. Result According to the analysis on the statistics in 2017, it seems that image analysis is getting the most attention, in which the focuses are mainly on object detection and recognition, image segmentation and edge detection, and object feature extraction and analysis. The researches and applications of image technology in the areas of remote sensing, radar and mapping are continuously very active. Conclusion This work shows a general and off-the-shelf picture of the various progresses, either for depth or for width, of image engineering in China in 2017.
