Module: FoundationLite

Moves a point from a local coordinate system to the absolute one.

Name Type Description
inPoint Point2D
inAlignment CoordinateSystem2D Coordinate system to align to
inInverse Bool Switches to the inverse transform
outAlignedPoint Point2D


Required when there is a point defined in a local coordinate system, but the next image-related filter in the program does not have any inAlignment input.


AlignPoint aligns the inPoint to the inAlignment coordinate system. The input point is translated, rotated and scaled.

The inAlignment is usually a coordinate system found by some template matching algorithm.


AlignPoint performed on the sample point. The inAlignment is drawn on the first image in blue.

Complexity Level

This filter is available on Basic Complexity Level.
