    The evolution of digital image processing can be viewed as a microcosm of the general data processing field. Originally established as a batch-type operation with only a handful of practitioners and a few applications, it has exhibited a steadily increasing growth rate, prompted by many of the same factors which have been responsible for the vast expansion in general data processing.

    The brightness levels in a scene or image, together with the spatial relationships among these levels, comprise the total input and output data available to the digital image processor. Indeed, in any mathematical image processing operation, these are the elements of the image which are being manipulated and which represent the major concern of the image processing professional. However, many othe... View full abstract»

    About 2-½ years ago the Army's Engineer Topographic Laboratories and Defense Mapping Agency began developing a digital image processing system for use in map making. Today that system, if it has not yet supplanted conventional approaches to map making, has nevertheless demonstrated the feasibility of digital techniques in photo-interpretation, stereo compilation, and automated cartography.

    During the last five years, ground-based astronomers have seeh some remarkable changes in the image data available to us for scientific analysis. Our image intensifiers have been greatly improved, and new photographic emulsions (Kodak IIIa-J and IIIa-F) with higher detective quantum efficiency and greater storage capacity have been introduced. Precise microdensitometers with digital output and ade... View full abstract»

    The image processing system has become an invaluable tool for today's scientists and engineers. This man/machine system is typically centered around a large digital computer and accompanied by those special image-processing devices and techniques that are required to give the user an ability for restoring distorted images, reducing image noise content, and making special measurements on the data o...

    The growth of digital image processing–from a few research centers 10 years ago to a number of large-scale facilities scattered throughout the world today–has created a need for educating people qualified to use the extremely sophisticated hardware and software that go into these facilities. This paper traces the development of a facility dedicated solely to the educational and researc... View full abstract»

    Although not designed with image processing specifically in mind, the Staran parallel processor has had a significant impact on that application area. The machine is full programmable, yet when applied to image processing it has demonstrated speeds usually associated only with hardwired systems. The result is an ability to execute interactively (response time under 10 seconds) a number of sophisit... View full abstract»

    As the number of image processing applications and users increases, so does the need for a low-cost image processing system. This paper describes an approach to the implementation of a solid-state image display which provides the nucleus for such a system. Combining a powerful display processor with modern random access memory refresh technology, the system features a unique "image array processor... View full abstract»
