EntropyFilter

EntropyFilter[image, r]
filters image by replacing every value by the information entropy of the values in its range r neighborhood.
EntropyFilter[data, r]
applies entropy filtering to an array of data.
  • EntropyFilter[image, r] computes the information entropy of the values in (2r+1)×(2r+1) blocks centered on each pixel.
  • Given a set of values pi, the information entropy is taken to be -sump_i log(p_i).
  • At the edges of an image, EntropyFilter uses smaller neighborhoods.
  • EntropyFilter[image, {r1, r2}] uses neighborhoods with vertical range r1 and horizontal range r2.
  • In EntropyFilter[data, ...], data can be an array of any rank, and can contain symbolic as well as numerical entries.
