TVHUI
Type: Task
Use:  The new task HUINT does a similar operation on two images with
      the option to save images of the data and the step wedge just as
      they appear on the TV.  This allows them to be plotted by KNTR,
      GREYS, PCNTR and then made into PostScript by LWPLA.  TVHUI
      tries to maintain some relationship with real units in its
      output, while HUINT does not.

      TVHUI will construct a TV image based on two or three AIPS
      images, one representing intensity, one representing hue, and,
      optionally, one representing saturation.  Two methods of
      converting HSI to RGB are offered.  The program then enters an
      interactive mode in which the user selects options from a menu
      shown on a graphics overlay plane.  Options are to enhance each
      of the images individually, to select linear, square-root, or
      one of 2 logarithmic transfer functions for intensity, to select
      the window specifying the sub-image which is used during
      interactive enhancements, to repaint the full image on the TV
      with a simple color scheme or an optimized scheme, and to exit
      with or without final updates and an output file. On-line help
      for the options is available by positioning the cursor to the
      option and pushing button D.  Pushing buttons A, B, or C selects
      the option.

      Note that this task was constructed in part to deal with
      pseudo-color displays incapable of true 3 color functions.  It
      has the concept of working on a smaller sub-image to enhance the
      coloring and then repainting the full image.  It does a look-up
      table optimized to represent the full colors in the image using
      the limited pseudo-color table available.  On those displays
      which do true color in 3 separate image memories, TVHUI can do a
      much better job representing the image in its full colors.
      Nonetheless, it may be slow because the RGB images must be
      computed at each change and re-loaded to the TV.  This slowness
      takes some adjustment on the users' part - be patient, the
      results are worth it.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Image name for intensity.    Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image class for intensity.   Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image seq. # for intensity.  0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit # for intensity.   0 => any.
  IN2NAME.....Image name for hue.          Standard defaults.
  IN2CLASS....Image class for hue.         Standard defaults.
  IN2SEQ......Image seq. # for hue.        0 => highest.
  IN2DISK.....Disk unit # for hue.         0 => any.
     If any of 3rd name non-blank/zero, then do saturation
  IN3NAME.....Image name for saturation.   Standard defaults.
  IN3CLASS....Image class for saturation.  Standard defaults.
  IN3SEQ......Image seq. # for saturation. 0 => highest.
  IN3DISK.....Disk unit # for saturation.  0 => any.
  DOOUTPUT....> 0 => write an output image with the 3rd axis being
              RGB.  The full range of input intensities are carried
              along (i.e. PIXRANGE is ignored in this phase).  The
              display intensity transfer function is also ignored.
              However, the scaling and clipping of the hue and
              saturation images done from DPARM(1,2) plus any
              interactive enhancement is used to set the color
              translation.  <= 0 -> skip output file.
              The full size of the input images is used for the output
              and the pixel increments are ignored.
              The effective PIXRANGE of the final display for each of
              the images is shown.  Use the one shown for Intensity
              when you TVLOD the output RGB cube to get the same
              display you saw inside TVHUI.
              >= 2 => also write an image of the hue-intensity step
              wedge.  2 causes the hue to be on the short vertical
              axis with intensity on the longer axis, 3 reverses this.
  OUTNAME.....Output name for RGB cube.     Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS....Output class for RGB cube.    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ......Output seq. # for RGB cube.   0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK.....Disk drive # of RGB cube.     0 => highest with
              space.
  OUT2NAME....Output name for RGB wedge.     Standard defaults.
  OUT2CLAS....Output class for RGB wedge.    Standard defaults.
  OUT2SEQ.....Output seq. # for RGB wedge.   0 => highest unique
  OUT2DISK....Disk drive # of RGB wedge.     0 => highest with
              space.
  IMSIZE......Controls the X and Y sizes in pixels of the output wedge
              image which is written when DOOUTPUT = 2 or 3.
              IMSIZE(1) < 25 -> TTRC(1)-TBLC(1)+1 or the maximum TV
                                X size if that is less.
              IMSIZE(2) < 20 -> 0.2 * Max (IMSIZE(1), 100)
  TBLC........Bottom Left Corner of intensity image.  (0,0) means
              (1,1).  The hue image window is the same size as the
              intensity image window, but a smaller window will be
              selected if needed to overlap the images.  See DOALIGN.
              The image size is also limited by the size of the TV.
              TBLC is ignored on writing the output image except for
              any alignment adjustments.
  TTRC........Top Right Corner of grey-scale image: (0,0) means top
              right corner of map.  NOTE: for the intensity image
              TTRC(3-7) is set to TBLC(3-7) since only one plane is
              shown.  If the hue image is a cube, TTRC(3) is taken to
              select the plane of that cube to be used for hue.  This
              allows a hue image of one plane to color am intensity
              image of another plane of the same cube.  TTRC is
              ignored on writing the output image except for any
              alignment adjustments.
  TXINC.......Increment in pixels between displayed pixels along
              the X axis.  0 => 1.  Ignored while doing output.
  TYINC.......Increment in pixels between displayed pixels along
              the X axis.  0 => 1.  Ignored while doing output.
  DOALIGN.....Controls how the intensity, hue, and saturation images
              are to be aligned (see HELP DOALIGN).  True (>.1) means
              that the images must agree in their coordinates, though
              not necessarily in the reference pixel position.
              Alignment is by coordinate values (if DOALIGN > -0.1) or
              by offsets from the reference pixel positions (if
              DOALIGN <= -0.1).  If DOALIGN < -1.5, alignment is at
              pixels (1,1,...) ignoring the headers.
  TVCHAN......TV channel to use: 0 => 1.  Two channels are used,
              TVCHAN for the unoptimized picture and TVCHAN+1 for the
              optimized picture.  Optimization is not available in
              TVHUI when there is only 1 channel; use DOOUT = 1 and
              task TVRGB.  Three channels are used on true-color TVs.
  OPTYPE......Determines algorithm used to convert intensity plus hue
              plus saturation into red-green-blue:
              = 'LUT'  -> TVHUEINT verb method.
              else     -> Gonzales and Woods, p 236 with S = 1 or
                          S determined by the saturation image.
  DOWEDGE.....If false (<= 0.0), do not plot a step wedge.  Otherwise
              plot a wedge on the TV, but not in the output image.  (A
              wedge image is written if DOOUTPUT = 2 or 3.)
              If 1.5 >= DOWEDGE > 0.0, then plot a wedge along the top
              of the image.  If > 1.5, plot a wedge along the
              right-hand edge of the image.  If > 2.5, plot wedges
              along both the top and the right-hand side.  Each wedge
              is a wedge in intensity along the longer side of the
              wedge and in hue along the shorter side of the wedge.
              Multiple wedges are drawn for each saturation level.
  DOCIRCLE....False (<= 0) means that colors range from red to green
              to blue only.  This is appropriate for 0th and 1st
              moment images for example.  True means that colors range
              from red to green to blue and back to red (through
              purple).  This is appropriate to polarization intensity
              and angle images, for example.
  PIXRANGE....Min,Max of Image intensity.  0 => entire range
  DPARM.......(1,2) pixrange for HUE image.  0,0 => full range
              (3,4) pixrange for saturation image.  0,0 => full range.
              (5) The ratio of the number of intensity levels to the
                 number of hue levels.  Allowed values 1.0 - 2.5..
                 default 1.5.  The number of grey levels is divided
                 into Nint * Nhue <= Ngrey levels and the lookup table
                 is set to translate these intensities and hues to
                 RGB.
              (6) Number of saturation levels to use.  Default is 3
                 and only 3 or 4 is allowed.
              (7) Maximum number of pixels in the interactive
                 sub-image.  0 => 86000, the upper limit.
                 Interactivity is with a sub-image of the displayed
                 image.  Initially, this is taken as a decimated
                 sub-image.  Interactively, one may specify a smaller
                 area with correspondingly less extreme decimation.
                 DPARM(7) is used to speed interactivity by giving up
                 display area.
              (8) Some TV devices (e.g. IIS Model 70 and XAS on some
                 computers) can display 3 separate images in separate
                 colors.  TVHUI will use this where possible unless
                 DPARM(6) > 0, in which case it uses its "standard"
                 1-channel methods.
              (9) > 0 => to include the step wedges when optimizing
                 colors.  If one does, then the wedge will be seen
                 fully but the presence of all colors in the wedge
                 will probably degrade the optimization of the images.
                 If one does not, (<= 0) then those colors in the
                 wedges which are not present in the images will
                 appear black in the display.  This is distracting but
                 very informative.
