Subject: Difficult images needed
One of our affiliated research students here at the UCL Centre for
Digital Humanities, shared with the Department of Medical Physics and
Bioengineering, needs some images to test his processing methods. I copy
his request below. If you have any such material it would be greatly
appreciated. Please contact me off-list and I'll put you in touch:

"My project involves applying image processing methods to multi-spectral
images in order to enhance or reveal difficult-to-read text.
The type of images that I need are the full-spectrum of unmodified,
multi-spectral images of manuscripts or documents. The methods that I
use will try to enhance text from this manuscripts. Ideally the images
should be from palimpsestic text, where at least one of the text is very
difficult to see or image with visible light captures."
