Paper Abstract

A computational system was developed to integrate both Fourier image processing techniques and biologically based image processing techniques. The Fourier techniques allow the spatially global manipulation of phase and amplitude spectra. The biologically based techniques allow for spatially localized manipulation of phase, amplitude and orientation independently on multiple spatial frequency scales. These techniques combined with a large variety of basic image processing functions allow for a versatile and systematic approach to be taken toward the development of specialized patterning and visual textures. Current applications involve research for the development of 2-dimensional spatial patterning that can function as effective camouflage patterns and masking patterns for the human visual system.
