Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

PDL::Image2D - Miscellaneous 2D image processing functions
Miscellaneous 2D image processing functions - for want of anywhere else to put them
use PDL::Image2D;
conv2d Signature: (a(m,n); kern(p,q); [o]b(m,n); int opt) 2D convolution of an array with a kernel (smoothing) For large kernels, using a FFT routine, such as fftconvolve() in "PDL::FFT", will be quicker. $new = conv2d $old, $kernel, {OPTIONS} $smoothed = conv2d $image, ones(3,3), {Boundary => Reflect} Boundary - controls what values are assumed for the image when kernel crosses its edge: => Default - periodic boundary conditions (i.e. wrap around axis) => Reflect - reflect at boundary => Truncate - truncate at boundary med2d Signature: (a(m,n); kern(p,q); [o]b(m,n); int opt) 2D median-convolution of an array with a kernel (smoothing) Note: only points in the kernel >0 are included in the median, other points are weighted by the kernel value (medianing lots of zeroes is rather pointless) $new = med2d $old, $kernel, {OPTIONS} $smoothed = med2d $image, ones(3,3), {Boundary => Reflect} Boundary - controls what values are assumed for the image when kernel crosses its edge: => Default - periodic boundary conditions (i.e. wrap around axis) => Reflect - reflect at boundary => Truncate - truncate at boundary med2df Signature: (a(m,n); [o]b(m,n); int __p_size; int __q_size; int opt) 2D median-convolution of an array in a pxq window (smoothing) Note: this routine does the median over all points in a rectangular window and is not quite as flexible as "med2d" in this regard but slightly faster instead $new = med2df $old, $xwidth, $ywidth, {OPTIONS} $smoothed = med2df $image, 3, 3, {Boundary => Reflect} Boundary - controls what values are assumed for the image when kernel crosses its edge: => Default - periodic boundary conditions (i.e. wrap around axis) => Reflect - reflect at boundary => Truncate - truncate at boundary box2d Signature: (a(n,m); [o] b(n,m); int wx; int wy; int edgezero) fast 2D boxcar average $smoothim = $im->box2d($wx,$wy,$edgezero=1); The edgezero argument controls if edge is set to zero (edgezero=1) or just keeps the original (unfiltered) values. "box2d" should be updated to support similar edge options as "conv2d" and "med2d" etc. Boxcar averaging is a pretty crude way of filtering. For serious stuff better filters are around (e.g., use conv2d with the appropriate kernel). On the other hand it is fast and computational cost grows only approximately linearly with window size. patch2d Signature: (a(m,n); int bad(m,n); [o]b(m,n)) patch bad pixels out of 2D images using a mask $patched = patch2d $data, $bad; $bad is a 2D mask array where 1=bad pixel 0=good pixel. Pixels are replaced by the average of their non-bad neighbours; if all neighbours are bad, the original data value is copied across. patchbad2d Signature: (a(m,n); [o]b(m,n)) patch bad pixels out of 2D images containing bad values $patched = patchbad2d $data; Pixels are replaced by the average of their non-bad neighbours; if all neighbours are bad, the output is set bad. If the input piddle con- tains no bad values, then a straight copy is performed (see patch2d). max2d_ind Signature: (a(m,n); [o]val(); int [o]x(); int[o]y()) Return value/position of maximum value in 2D image Contributed by Tim Jeness centroid2d Signature: (im(m,n); x(); y(); box(); [o]xcen(); [o]ycen()) Refine a list of object positions in 2D image by centroiding in a box $box is the full-width of the box, i.e. the window is "+/- $box/2". cc8compt Signature: (a(m,n); [o]b(m,n)) Connected 8-component labeling of a binary image. Connected 8-component labeling of 0,1 image - i.e. find seperate segmented objects and fill object pixels with object number $segmented = cc8compt( $image > $threshold ); polyfill Signature: (int [o,nc] im(m,n); float ps(two=2,np); int col()) fill the area inside the given polygon with a given colour This function works inplace, i.e. modifies "im". polyfillv return the (dataflown) area of an image within a polygon # increment intensity in area bounded by $poly $im->polyfillv($pol)++; # legal in perl >= 5.6 # compute average intensity within area bounded by $poly $av = $im->polyfillv($poly)->avg; rot2d Signature: (im(m,n); float angle(); bg(); int aa(); [o] om(p,q)) rotate an image by given "angle" # rotate by 10.5 degrees with antialiasing, set missing values to 7 $rot = $im->rot2d(10.5,7,1); This function rotates an image through an "angle" between -90 and + 90 degrees. Uses/doesn't use antialiasing depending on the "aa" flag. Pixels outside the rotated image are set to "bg". Code modified from pnmrotate (Copyright Jef Poskanzer) with an algorithm based on "A Fast Algorithm for General Raster Rotation" by Alan Paeth, Graphics Interface '86, pp. 77-81. Use the "rotnewsz" function to find out about the dimension of the newly created image ($newcols,$newrows) = rotnewsz $oldn, $oldm, $angle; bilin2d Signature: (I(n,m); O(q,p)) Bilineary maps the first piddle in the second. The interpolated values are actually added to the second piddle which is supposed to be larger than the first one. rescale2d Signature: (I(n,m); O(q,p)) The first piddle is rescaled to the dimensions of the second (expandind or meaning values as needed) and then added to it. fitwarp2d Find the best-fit 2D polynomial to describe a coordinate transformation. ( $px, $py ) = fitwarp2d( $x, $y, $u, $v, $nf. { options } ) Given a set of points in the output plane ("$u,$v"), find the best-fit (using singular-value decomposition) 2D polynomial to describe the mapping back to the image plane ("$x,$y"). The order of the fit is controlled by the $nf parameter (the maximum power of the polynomial is "$nf - 1"), and you can restrict the terms to fit using the "FIT" option. $px and $py are "np" by "np" element piddles which describe a polynomial mapping (of order "np-1") from the output "(u,v)" image to the input "(x,y)" image: x = sum(j=0,np-1) sum(i=0,np-1) px(i,j) * u^i * v^j y = sum(j=0,np-1) sum(i=0,np-1) py(i,j) * u^i * v^j The transformation is returned for the reverse direction (ie output to input image) since that is what is required by the warp2d() routine. The applywarp2d() routine can be used to convert a set of "$u,$v" points given $px and $py. Options: FIT - which terms to fit? default ones(byte,$nf,$nf) THRESH - in svd, remove terms smaller than THRESH * max value default is 1.0e-5 FIT "FIT" allows you to restrict which terms of the polynomial to fit: only those terms for which the FIT piddle evaluates to true will be evaluated. If a 2D piddle is sent in, then it is used for the x and y polynomials; otherwise "$fit->slice(":,:,(0)")" will be used for $px and "$fit->slice(":,:,(1)")" will be used for $py. THRESH Remove all singular values whose valus is less than "THRESH" times the largest singular value. The number of points must be at least equal to the number of terms to fit ("$nf*$nf" points for the default value of "FIT"). # points in original image $x = pdl( 0, 0, 100, 100 ); $y = pdl( 0, 100, 100, 0 ); # get warped to these positions $u = pdl( 10, 10, 90, 90 ); $v = pdl( 10, 90, 90, 10 ); # # shift of origin + scale x/y axis only $fit = byte( [ [1,1], [0,0] ], [ [1,0], [1,0] ] ); ( $px, $py ) = fitwarp2d( $x, $y, $u, $v, 2, { FIT => $fit } ); print "px = ${px}py = $py"; px = [ [-12.5 1.25] [ 0 0] ] py = [ [-12.5 0] [ 1.25 0] ] # # Compared to allowing all 4 terms ( $px, $py ) = fitwarp2d( $x, $y, $u, $v, 2 ); print "px = ${px}py = $py"; px = [ [ -12.5 1.25] [ 1.110223e-16 -1.1275703e-17] ] py = [ [ -12.5 1.6653345e-16] [ 1.25 -5.8546917e-18] ] applywarp2d Transform a set of points using a 2-D polynomial mapping ( $x, $y ) = applywarp2d( $px, $py, $u, $v ) Convert a set of points (stored in 1D piddles "$u,$v") to "$x,$y" using the 2-D polynomial with coefficients stored in $px and $py. See fitwarp2d() for more information on the format of $px and $py. warp2d Signature: (img(m,n); double px(np,np); double py(np,np); [o] warp(m,n); { options }) Warp a 2D image given a polynomial describing the reverse mapping. $out = warp2d( $img, $px, $py, { options } ); Apply the polynomial transformation encoded in the $px and $py piddles to warp the input image $img into the output image $out. The format for the polynomial transformation is described in the documentation for the fitwarp2d() routine. At each point "x,y", the closest 16 pixel values are combined with an interpolation kernel to calculate the value at "u,v". The interpola- tion is therefore done in the image, rather than Fourier, domain. By default, a "tanh" kernel is used, but this can be changed using the "KERNEL" option discussed below (the choice of kernel depends on the frequency content of the input image). The routine is based on the "warping" command from the Eclipse data-reduction package - see - and for further details on image resampling see Wolberg, G., "Digital Image Warping", 1990, IEEE Computer Society Press ISBN 0-8186-8944-7). Currently the output image is the same size as the input one, which means data will be lost if the transformation reduces the pixel scale. This will (hopefully) be changed soon. $img = rvals(byte,501,501); imag $img, { JUSTIFY => 1 }; # # use a not-particularly-obvious transformation: # x = -10 + 0.5 * $u - 0.1 * $v # y = -20 + $v - 0.002 * $u * $v # $px = pdl( [ -10, 0.5 ], [ -0.1, 0 ] ); $py = pdl( [ -20, 0 ], [ 1, 0.002 ] ); $wrp = warp2d( $img, $px, $py ); # # see the warped image imag $warp, { JUSTIFY => 1 }; The options are: KERNEL - default value is tanh NOVAL - default value is 0 "KERNEL" is used to specify which interpolation kernel to use (to see what these kernels look like, use the warp2d_kernel() routine). The options are: tanh Hyperbolic tangent: the approximation of an ideal box filter by the product of symmetric tanh functions. sinc For a correctly sampled signal, the ideal filter in the fourier domain is a rectangle, which produces a "sinc" interpolation kernel in the spatial domain: sinc(x) = sin(pi * x) / (pi * x) However, it is not ideal for the "4x4" pixel region used here. sinc2 This is the square of the sinc function. lanczos Although defined differently to the "tanh" kernel, the result is very similar in the spatial domain. The Lanczos function is defined as L(x) = sinc(x) * sinc(x/2) if abs(x) < 2 = 0 otherwise hann This kernel is derived from the following function: H(x) = a + (1-a) * cos(2*pi*x/(N-1)) if abs(x) < 0.5*(N-1) = 0 otherwise with "a = 0.5" and N currently equal to 2001. hamming This kernel uses the same H(x) as the Hann filter, but with "a = 0.54". "NOVAL" gives the value used to indicate that a pixel in the output image does not map onto one in the input image. warp2d_kernel Return the specified kernel, as used by warp2d ( $x, $k ) = warp2d_kernel( $name ) The valid values for $name are the same as the "KERNEL" option of warp2d(). line warp2d_kernel( "hamming" );
