public class LutMap
- extends Mapping
Java interface to the AST LutMap class
- transform 1-dimensional coordinates using a lookup table.
A LutMap is a specialised form of Mapping which transforms
1-dimensional coordinates by using linear interpolation in a
lookup table.
Each input coordinate value is first scaled to give the index of
an entry in the table by subtracting a starting value (the input
coordinate corresponding to the first table entry) and dividing
by an increment (the difference in input coordinate value
between adjacent table entries).
The resulting index will usually contain a fractional part, so
the output coordinate value is then generated by interpolating
linearly between the appropriate entries in the table. If the
index lies outside the range of the table, linear extrapolation
is used based on the two nearest entries (i.e. the two entries
at the start or end of the table, as appropriate). If either of the
entries used for the interplation has a value of AST__BAD, then the
interpolated value is returned as AST__BAD.
If the lookup table entries increase or decrease monotonically
(ignoring any flat sections), then the inverse transformation may
also be performed.

LutMap
public LutMap(double[] lut,
double start,
double inc)
- Create a LutMap.
- Parameters:
lut
- An array containing the lookup table entries. There must be
at least two elements.start
- The input coordinate value which corresponds to the first lookup
table entry.inc
- The lookup table spacing (the increment in input coordinate
value between successive lookup table entries). This value
may be positive or negative, but must not be zero.
- Throws:
AstException
- if an error occurred in the AST library
