Histogram Equalization

Histogram equalization can be used to increase the local contrast of an image, especially when the useful data of the image has very close grey level. It is accomplished by effectively spreading out the most frequent intensity values. Through this adjustment, the intensities can be better distributed on the histogram. This allows areas of lower local contrast to gain a higher contrast without affecting the global contrast.
