Image processing is a loosely defined term whose meaning varies greatly among diverse fields such as digital signal processing, computer vision, computer graphics, remote sensing, neural networks, etc. Naturally, the image processing techniques have diversified involving optics, statistics, mathematics, psychophysics, neurophysics, etc. This paper examines the state of the art in image processing in a limited context where image processing is viewed strictly as a method for retrieving information about an imaged object.
