public abstract class SphereDistorter
extends Transformer
implements Component

This class defines a non-linear distortion in the image plane. Normally the forward distortion converts from a fiducial projection plane to some distorted coordinates. The reverse distortion transforms from the distorted coordinates back to the fiducial coordinates.

public abstract SphereDistorter inverse()
Description copied from class: Transformer
Get the inverse of the transformation. If the order matters, then the inverse is to be applied after the original transformation. This is primarily an issue with Converters.
