Application of the VSC-1/Atari 1040ST Image-Processing System to Forensic Document Problems
In 1987, Foster and Freeman introduced a software package for image processing using the Atari 1040ST computer. The software and computer are interfaced with their video spectral comparator (VSC) to form a complete processing system. There are five basic image-processing functions and several display operations that permit the enhancement of images with this system. These image enhancement capabilities have direct application to problems encountered by forensic document examiners. Three such problems are set forth to demonstrate the direct application of these processing functions. The techniques used in these problems will also be presented.
