Relationships between image synthesis and analysis : towards unification?

Published inComputer graphics forum, vol. 9, no. 2, p. 149-163
Publication date1990

Image analysis and image synthesis have evolved on separate tracks, at different paces. There is however an increasing awareness of the numerous and growing overlaps between the two fields. By detailing the various areas where such overlaps might be found this report wishes to promote unification of analysis and synthesis into “imagery”.Three ways of looking for common ground are presented: common theoretical background, common areas of study, and common applications. They show that the distinction between image synthesis and image analysis has outlived its usefulness. The absolute differences can be discarded; what remains is a great commonality of interest.
