This paper pertains to creating high resolution radiance maps,
by combining differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter
in order to extend dynamic range. (Based on an earlier
published in IS&T.)

If you're in the Toronto area, there will be an exhibit of
Prof. Mann's WearComp inventions at the Ontario Science Center,
opening Feb. 28, 1998. The exhibit will then travel to the
Stedelijk Museum of Art in Amsterdam.
