public abstract class Distorter
extends Transformer
implements Named

This class defines a non-linear distortion in the image plane. Normally the forward distortion converts from a fiducial projection plane to some distorted coordinates. The reverse distortion transforms from the distorted coordinates back to the fiducial coordinates.

getDescription

public java.lang.String getDescription()
What does this object do?


inverse

public abstract Distorter inverse()
Description copied from class: Transformer
Get the inverse of the transformation. If the order matters, then the inverse is to be applied after the original transformation. This is primarily an issue with Converters.

Specified by:
inverse in class Transformer

getOutputDimension

protected int getOutputDimension()
What is the output dimensionality of a Distorter?

Specified by:
getOutputDimension in class Transformer

getInputDimension

protected int getInputDimension()
What is the input dimensionality of a Distorter?

Specified by:
getInputDimension in class Transformer
