The domestication of the aurochs took place approximately 10,000 years ago giving rise to the two main types of domestic cattle known today, taurine (Bos taurus) domesticated somewhere on or near the Fertile Crescent, and indicine (Bos indicus) domesticated in the Indus Valley. However, although cattle have historically played a prominent role in human(More)
With the development of digital image collections, comes the opportunity to capture and manipulate captured object information not previously available with photographic methods. With this advantage, however, come a host of choices beyond selection of image capture hardware, and acquisition software. In establishing imaging practice for a particular(More)
The utility of digital over traditional imaging methods in terms of data delivery, access, and manipulation are undeniable and well recognized. Data literacy in such digital matters is well established. What is not yet developed, but slowly emerging, is an accompanying image literacy; the ability to measure, test, and visually recognize good images from bad(More)
The MSN User Experience Team developed new user-centered methods to provide structured user input on the visual design of the newly-released MSN Explorer, an integrated software package. In the final product, users rated "appearance" above all of the product's features. This case describes how the MSN User Experience Team derived a design direction to set(More)
One of the first and iconic imaging targets to be developed for color photography was described by McCamy, Marcus, and Davidson. That was more than thirty years ago and, for better or for worse, the Macbeth ColorChecker™ continues to be a de-facto target standard in imaging circles. The target was designed to simulate the spectral nature of critical or(More)
An array of thermal emitters has been developed for use in a portable test set to enable field-testing of low-performance infrared imaging systems and seekers. It is not known if this technology can be used to evaluate the performance of state-of-the-art thermal imagers. This paper describes the preliminary measurements of thermal pixel array (TPA)(More)
This paper describes a digital image capture simulator that incorporates a lens model based on point-spread function (PSF) data from a commercial lens design package. This lens model has significant advantages over a simple MTF based model, because it accounts for all image degrading aberrations commonly encountered in image capture systems. Lens design(More)
