Sir, Need your help. It's a sea shore image. I have to find out the location where the sea surface temperature is high based on color value variation (color graph is attached with the image), from the rgb image.
(ie, if an area contains high red value then the sst is 33.5 which is very high in this particular location)
Note: The color scale displayed beneath the image just relates the colors in the image. which is just a color scale which defines---> if this color then this will be the temperature value.
(eg: if blue color in the rgb image,it will just aware us that the temperature is low).

my temperature range: 20-degree Celcius - 713.07-degree Celcius

If you have an RGB image and a colormap (which seems to be the case), you can convert it to an indexed image:
IndexImage = rgb2ind(RGB, map)
Now IndexImage is a a 2D matrix containing the indices related to the color map. Now simply search the maximum value:
[maxIndex, pos] = max(IndexImage);
[y, x] = ind2sub(size(IndexImage), pos);
Or you can create a mask for values above a threshold:
mask = IndexImage > 75; % Example
figure;
If you want to set the limit to 33.5 degree, you have to find out to which index of the colormap this value belongs. For an explicit suggestion, we need to know how your colormap is defined.

% code
figure
imagesc(RGB)
axis image
% zoom(4)
[IND,map] = rgb2ind(RGB,32);
figure
imagesc(IND)
colormap(map)
axis image
% zoom(4)
[i,j]=ind2sub(map,IND);
But sir, output of this code produced didn't match the output expected.. I am new to matlab, need help...

Please attach the input data and explain, what you expect. Maybe the Matlab code works reliably and only your expectations are the problem?

1. crop to the relevant part (remove axis and dashed lines)
2. convert to indices with rgb2ind
3. use [r,c]=find(A_ind==min(A_ind(:)); (or ind2sub) to get the location(s).

qARUN V: We cannot know, which output you expect. I suggest to open a new thread and to explain the details.

I've already done exactly that for someone else. Take the attached m-file and make the obvious changes.

You can see from this matlab result, The maximum temperature in each frame is same value(84.02).
how can I solve this problem?

you do not appear to have cropped the color bar out of the images before looking at the maximum

ExtractMovieFrames.m What does the file and the following files say? where can i use it?

@Özgür Uzunkaya I wrote the attached, well commented program. If you have any questions about it let me know what lines they are and I'll improve the comments.
You may not want to do everything in the demo, for example asking the user if they want to save each individual movie frame. Just delete the parts you don't want and make any other modifications you want.
I have lots of other movie demos. I've attached some of them if you want them.
