Geometric Enhancement Using Image Domain Techniques

  • John A. Richards


This chapter presents methods by which the geometric detail in an image may be modified and enhanced. The specific techniques covered are applied to the image data directly and could be called image domain techniques. These are alternatives to procedures used in the spatial frequency domain which require Fourier transformation of the image beforehand. Those are treated in Chap. 7.
