Abstract

A form of ranked-order filters is introduced as the local maximum filter. The construction of the local maximum filter is described, followed by a discussion of its function and some of its more important properties, and an example application of a two-dimensional local maximum filter is provided to illustrate the detection of single-pixel targets against a cloud clutter background. The closing discussion provides a mathematical development of the filter.
