NAME

       gpiv_scale - Scaling of PIV data.

SYNOPSIS

       gpiv_scale  [-h | --help] [-p | --print] [-s M |-S M] [-t dT |-T dT] [-v | --version] [-zp
       x0 y0] [-zv x0 y0] [filename] < stdin > stdout

DESCRIPTION

       gpiv_scale applies the image magnification and the time between successive  recordings  to
       the  PIV  estimators.  This  results  that  particle  displacements  [px]  are modified to
       velocities [m/s] and their positions from [px]  to  [m].  A  physical  reference  for  the
       positions of the PIV data can be applied by means of the image zero-offset option.

       If filename is used, the parameters and options to be used for gpiv_scale are subsequently
       read from the image header  (filename.h  in  case  of  raw  binary  images)  or  from  the
       configuration  resources  (containing  the  IMG  and  POST  keys).  The  parameters may be
       overruled by the command line options, as explained below.

Options

       -h | --help
              On-line help.

       -p | --print
              Prints parameters, command line options and input and output filenames  to  stdout.
              The output is identic of filename.par, in case -f is used.

       -s M   spatial scaling with magnification factor M [m/px]

       -S M   Inverse  spatial scaling with magnification factor M [m/px]; returns scaled data to
              their original magnitudes.

       -v | --version
              Prints version information on standard output, then exits successfully.

       -t dT  Translates particle displacements into velocities by devising them  with  the  time
              between subsequent recordings dT [s].

       -T dT  Inverse time scaling. Returns velocities into displacements [px]

       [-z x0 y0]
              Relates the positions of the observations of velocities/displacements to a physical
              location in the experiment by image zero offsetting.  x0  y0  denote  the  physical
              position of pixel (0,0) in the image.

       filename
              Input  PIV  file.  Overrides  stdin  and  stdout.  The  output  will  be written to
              filename.sc.piv. Parameters are stored in filename.par and may be used  for  future
              use by including them in ./gpivrc.
