SLADS is a greedy sparse dynamic image sampling algorithm. In SLADS, the objective at each step is to find the pixel location that maximizes the expected reduction in distortion (ERD) given previous measurements.
The Python package includes a ReadMe.txt file as well as some simulated Electron Back Scatter Diffraction images generated using the Dream3D software for experimentation.
SLADS was developed by G. M. Dilshan P. Godaliyadda , Dong Hye Ye and Charles A. Bouman from the Integrated Imaging Laboratory at Purdue University, Gregery T. Buzzard from the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University, and Michael D. Uchic and Michael A. Groeber from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
Here, we show results comparing SLADS with random sampling (RS) and Low-discrepancy sampling (LS) when ~6% of the image is sampled. In this experiment we use Electron Back Scatter Diffraction images generated using the Dream3D software. The details of the experiment are published in , which is also where the results were first published.
