pgmkernel - generate a convolution kernel
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
-weight w ] width [ height ]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
Generates a portable graymap array of size width x height (or width x width if height is not specified) to be used as a convolution file by
R pnmconvol . The data in the convolution array K are computed according to the formula:
K(i,j) = 1 / ( 1 + w * sqrt((i-width/2)^2 + (j-height/2)^2))
where w is a coefficient specified via the -weight flag, and width and height are the X and Y filter sizes.
The output PGM file is always written out in ASCII format.
4. OPTIONS ▲
The optional -weight flag should be a real number greater than -1. The default value is 6.0.
5. BUGS ▲
The computation time is proportional to width * height . This increases rapidly with the increase of the kernel size. A better approach could be using a FFT in these cases.
