Michael Landy, Y. Cohen, G. Sperling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A software system for image processing, HIPS, was developed for use in a UNIX environment. It includes a small set of subroutines which primarily deals with a standardized descriptive image sequence header, and an ever-growing library of image transformation tools in the form of UNIX 'filters'. Programs have been developed for simple image transformations, filtering, convolution, Fourier and other transform processing, edge detection and line drawing manipulation, simulation of digital compression and transmission, noise generation, and image statistics computation. -from Authors
