Author Affiliations +
IR imagery tends to have a higher dynamic range then typical display devices such as a CRT. Global methods such as stretching and histogram equalization improve the visibility of many images, but some information in the images stays hidden for a human operator. This paper reports about the possibility to represent more information by using local adaptive techniques. Based upon methods found in literature, a new multi-scale method is presented.
