APPENDIX: SOME SIMPLE IMAGE PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

The following example uses fractal geometry to show some of the intermediate steps in the progressive transformation of one image to another ( Bridger, 1988). For those who are uninitiated to the world of visualization, it provides a brief introduction to simple image processing techniques and a demonstration of the power of image processing to change our perspective on things.
