MathMap is an image processing application that works on several levels:
Without any prerequisite knowledge about image processing, one can use any of the more than one hundred filters that come bundled with MathMap.
More advanced users can combine filters intuitively in the Composer, as pictured above.
For expert users MathMap provides a simple but very efficient programming language. This is the core of MathMap and the language that almost all MathMap filters are implemented in.
MathMap can be used as a GIMP plug-in as well as a command-line tool. It is distributed as Free Software under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence.
Fedora dependencies: gsl-devel
Ubuntu depedencies: libgsl23, libgsl-dev, libgtksourceview2.0-0, libgif7
To use the latest Ubuntu package with earlier Ubuntu releases apply a symlink:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgsl.so.19 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgsl.so.23
Earlier packs work on later versions with the link reversed:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgsl.so.23 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgsl.so.19
New packages are announced on the MathMap Google Group. Use at your own risk!
We have implemented a stand-alone version of MathMap for Mac OS X called "MathMap Cocoa". Unfortunately it is somewhat outdated. The latest release is 1.2.4-1 which you can download here. It includes an introductory video presentation. The complete source code (including the XCode project) can be downloaded here.
The MathMap community hangs out at the MathMap Google group. Feel free to join, ask questions, and present your own filters!
There is also an active community on the MathMap Flickr group, where people share images they've created.
You can also contact the maintainer, Karl Stevens, directly.
Please report bugs on our GitHub issue tracker.
The MathMap source repository is hosted on GitHub. See the file README.git there for instructions.
