Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Enhancing multispectral imagery of ancient documents
by Griffiths, Trace A., M.S., Utah State University, 2011, 103; 1491885
Abstract (Summary)

Multispectral imaging (MSI) provides a wealth of imagery data that, together with modern signal processing techniques, facilitates the enhancement of document images. In this thesis, four topic areas are reviewed and applied to ancient documents. They are image fusion, matched filters, bleed-through removal, and shadow removal. These four areas of focus provide useful tools for papyrologists studying the digital imagery of documents. The results presented form a strong case for the utility of MSI data over the use of a single image captured at any given wavelength of light.
