The idea with noise smoothing is to reduce various spurious effects of a
local nature in the image, caused perhaps by
- noise in the image
- arising as a result of transmission of the image, for example
from a space probe utilising a low-power transmitter.
The smoothing can be done
either by considering the real space image, or its Fourier transform.
