The data structure used to represent image information can be critical to the
successful completion of an image processing task. One structure that has
attracted considerable attention is the image pyramid This consists of a set of
lowpass or bandpass copies of an image, each representing pattern information of
a different scale. Here we describe a variety of pyramid methods that we have
developed for image data compression, enhancement, analysis and graphics.
