Introduction
Abstract
Over recent decades the role of images in the communication of the information has grown steadily. Advances in technologies underlying the capture, transfer, storage, and display of images have created a situation in which the use of images as a means of communication information has become technologically and economically feasible. More importantly, however, images are in many situations an extremely efficient means to communicate information, as may be witnessed by the proverb "a picture is worth a thousand words." Without a doubt, this has been the most prominent factor pushing technological development.
