A software system for skeletonization of interference images is presented. This system can process interferograms of a different origin (classical, holographic, laser and speckle interferometry) with arbitrarily shaped fringe pattern. In the result, the system produces skeleton interferograms in the form of continuous and smoothed lines related to the maxima of the light-intensity distribution in interference images. The system can operate on microcomputers IBM PC/AT and compatible ones, and it can be utilized in different special systems for automated interpretation of interferograms. A number of experimental examples of the interferogram processing by means of the system is given.
