An empirical measure for the selection of the edge-enhancement Gaussian filter is developed. The Gaussian filter is specified by its standard deviation sigma ; the filter's spatial support is a function of sigma . An estimation procedure for sigma using Fourier analysis is described. The measure is easy to implement and is based totally on the image at hand. Experimental results suggest that this measure can be used as an aid in deciding the Gaussian filter's spatial support, which is needed to enhance the edges. Other equivalent bandwidth definitions can be used to obtain a measure of the frequency spread in the smoothed image (e.g., the mean-square bandwidth).<>
