i.ifft - Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) for image processing.
i.ifft real_image=name imaginary_image=name output_image=name [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet]
- Allow output files to overwrite existing files
- Verbose module output
- Quiet module output
- Name of input raster map (image fft, real part)
- Name of input raster map (image fft, imaginary part
- Name for output raster map
i.ifft is an image processing program based on the algorithm given
by Frigo et al. (1998), that converts real and imaginary frequency space
images (produced by
i.fft) into a normal image.
The current mask is respected when reading the real and
imaginary component files; thus, creating a mask is a
primary step for
selecting the portion of the frequency space data to be included in the
inverse transform. The GRASS program r.digit can be used to create
masks while viewing the real or imaginary component image. Alternatively
r.circle can be used to generate high-, low- and donut filters
specifying the DC point as circle/ring center.
When i.ifft is executed, it (automatically) uses the same GRASS
region definition setting that was used during the original transformation
done with i.fft.
The real and imaginary components are read from arrays of
doubles in the cell_misc directory (produced by
the forward transform program,
and the reconstructed image will preserve the cell value
scaling of the original image processed by
i.fft. No color
table is assigned to the output map; one should be created
before viewing the output_image.
M. Frigo and S. G. Johnson (1998): "FFTW: An Adaptive Software Architecture
for the FFT". See www.FFTW.org: FFTW is a C subroutine library
for computing the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more
dimensions, of both real and complex data, and of arbitrary input size.
