Paper Abstract

This paper reports an evaluation of 16 quantitative models of system quality for hard-copy (i.e., positive film transparencies) and soft-copy (i.e., CRT-based) displays of digitally derived imagery. The results demonstrate that the effects of system noise and blur degradation upon photointerpretation and subjective scaling performance can be predicted, on an a priori basis, with better than 85% accuracy.
