Paper Abstract

This paper presents an extension of generalized boundary- fitted coordinate systems to image and fringe processing. Through a non-linear boundary-fitted coordinate system, it is possible to apply a very convenient geometrical transformation in an image in order to map a non-regular domain into a rectangular domain. The approach is very flexible and it can be used to map a very large variety of shapes, including shapes with discontinuities, voids or holes, into a rectangular area. That can be used to handle image processing task where the shape of the area that contains the fringe patterns is non regular: a one by one image mapping is applied, and the fringe processing can very comfortably be accomplished in a rectangular domain. The measurement data can very easily be digitized in a naturally defined boundary-fitted digitizing mesh. A computationally efficient algorithm is also presented to allow very fast image mapping. Some application examples are given.
