Hexagonal Image Processing: A Practical Approach (Advances by Lee Middleton

By Lee Middleton

This publication offers an creation to the processing of hexagonally sampled pictures, features a survey of the paintings performed within the box, and provides a unique framework for hexagonal picture processing (HIP) according to hierarchical aggregates. The strengths provided by means of hexagonal lattices over sq. lattices to outline electronic photographs are huge: better packing density uniform connectivity of issues (pixels) within the lattice greater angular answer by way of advantage of getting extra nearest neighbours superlative illustration of curves The application of the HIP framework is proven by way of enforcing a number of easy photograph processing innovations (for the spatial and frequency area) and a few purposes. idea and algorithms are coated in addition to information reminiscent of accommodating that help in simple terms photographs sampled on a sq. lattice. A CD-ROM presents code permitting the reader to advance and try algorithms for processing hexagonal photographs. This clean technique deals perception and possible knowledge to either researchers and postgraduates.
