Parameters

hue=name [required]
Name of input raster map (hue)
intensity=name [required]
Name of input raster map (intensity)
saturation=name [required]

Description

i.his.rgb is an image processing program that processes three input raster map layers as hue, intensity and saturation components and produces three output raster map layers representing the red, green and blue components of this data. The output raster map layers are created by a standard hue-intensity-saturation (HIS) to red-green-blue (RGB) color transformation. Each output raster map layer is given a linear gray scale color table. The current geographic region and mask settings are respected.

Notes

It is not possible to process three bands with i.his.rgb and then exactly recover the original bands with i.rgb.his. This is due to loss of precision because of integer computations and rounding. Tests have shown that more than 70% of the original cell values will be reproduced exactly after transformation in both directions and that 99% will be within plus or minus 1. A few cell values may differ significantly from their original values.
