EXPAND

EXPAND

The EXPAND procedure shrinks or expands a two-dimensional array, using bilinear interpolation. It is similar to the CONGRID and REBIN routines.

This routine is written in the IDL language. Its source code can be found in the file expand.pro in the lib subdirectory of the IDL distribution.

Example


Copy and paste the following example code to see EXPAND in action on a JPG image.

; Locate and read in an image file.
file = FILEPATH('rbcells.jpg', $
   SUBDIR=['examples', 'data'])
READ_JPEG, file, img
 
; Use EXPAND to enlarge the original picture 
; and save it as img2.
EXPAND, img, 864, 778, img2
 
; Display the original and expanded versions
; of the image in the same window.
a1 = IMAGE(img, LAYOUT=[2,1,1])
a2 = IMAGE(img2, LAYOUT=[2,1,2], /CURRENT)
 
; Change the dimensions again, saving as
; img3 and img4, then view them.
EXPAND, img, 432, 1200, img3
EXPAND, img, 1500, 389, img4
b1 = IMAGE(img3)
b2 = IMAGE(img4)

Syntax


EXPAND, A, Nx, Ny, Result [, FILLVAL=value] [, MAXVAL=value]

Arguments


A

A two-dimensional array to be magnified.

Nx

Desired size of the X dimension, in pixels.

Ny

Desired size of the Y dimension, in pixels.

Result

A named variable that will contain the magnified array.

Keywords


FILLVAL

Set this keyword equal to the value to use when elements larger than MAXVAL are encountered. The default is -1.
