Geometric Mean Filter

Description

Applies a geometric mean filter to an image.

In the geometric mean method, the color value of each pixel is replaced with the geometric mean of color values of the pixels in a surrounding region. A larger region (filter size) yields a stronger filter effect with the drawback of some blurring.

The geometric mean is defined as:

Geometric mean

The geometric mean filter is better at removing Gaussian type noise and preserving edge features than the arithmetic mean filter. The geometric mean filter is very susceptible to negative outliers.
