i.fft is an image processing program based on the FFT algorithm given by Frigo et al.
(1998), that processes a single input raster map layer (input) and constructs the real and
imaginary Fourier components in frequency space.


The real and imaginary components are stored into the real and imaginary raster map
layers. In these raster map layers the low frequency components are in the center and the
high frequency components are toward the edges. The input need not be square. A color
table is assigned to the resultant map layer.

The current geographic region and mask settings are respected when reading the input file.
The presence of nulls or a mask will make the resulting fast Fourier transform invalid.


North Carolina example:
g.region raster=lsat7_2002_70
i.fft input=lsat7_2002_70 real=lsat7_2002_70.real imaginary=lsat7_2002_70.imag
# set region to resulting FFT output map (due to new FFT coordinate space):
g.region raster=lsat7_2002_70.real -p
d.mon x0
d.rast lsat7_2002_70.real
d.rast lsat7_2002_70.imag

the FFT". See www.FFTW.org: FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the
Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of both real and
complex data, and of arbitrary input size.
