IMM HIPS programs, 3 April 1997


This is a synopsis of some HIPS programs written by members of the Section for Image Analysis at IMM, the Department of Mathematical Modelling at the Technical University of Denmark. The programs are developed and run on a network consisting of HP, SGI, Sun, IBM, DEC, and NeXT UNIX engines plus an increasing number of PCs running Linux. The Section Image Analysis is headed by Professor Knut Conradsen.


These programs are copyright (C) 1990-1997 the author(s) and IMM. The programs may not be used without the expressed permission of the author(s) or IMM, Department of Mathematical Modelling, Technical University of Denmark. This software is provided "as is", with no warranties of any kind whatsoever, no support, promise of updates, or printed documentation. Bug reports or fixes may be sent to the author, who may or may not act on them as (s)he desires.


No guarantees of performance accompany this software, nor is any responsibility assumed on the part of the authors. All the software has been tested extensively and every effort has been made to insure its reliability.
