rio-hist

Histogram matching plugin for rasterio.

Provides a CLI and python module for adjusting colors based on histogram matching in a variety of colorspaces.

Example

We have a source image that we want to alter. We have a reference image with a histogram that we like. The goal is to adjust the values of the source image so that its histogram matches that of the reference.

The matching directly in the default RGB colorspace does not always give the best results. So for this example, we'll adjust based on the Lightness and Chroma in LCH colorspace.

$ rio hist -c LCH -b 1,2 --plot source.tif reference.tif output.tif

This will give us a new output.tif that matches the histogram of reference. And the --plot option also allows us to see some diagnostic plots to inspect the results and the cumulative distribution functions of the matching process.

                                  (default 1,2,3)
  -m, --match-proportion FLOAT    Interpolate values between source and

Python docs

rio_hist.match.histogram_match is the main entry point and operates on a single band.

rio_hist.utils has some interesting functions that may be useful in other contexts.
