This demo illustrates the effect of a local normalization algorithm that uniformizes the local mean and variance of an image. This is especially useful for correct non-uniform illumination or shading artifacts.
Local normalization using smoothing operators
The local normalization of f(x,y) is computed as follows:
The estimation of the local mean and standard deviation is performed through spatial smoothing.
The parameters of the algorithm are the sizes of the smoothing windows, s1, and, s2, which control the estimation of the local mean and local variance, respectively.
