Summary:
Python is a very powerful software language that is used extensively in science and engineering applications. It has a wealth of powerful and flexible libraries.

In this presentation, Paul Anderson will describe how he has used Python to generate multi-layered photographic mosaics from a reference digital image. The generating algorithm is a stand-alone Python script which makes use of the numpy package for array processing, the Python Imaging Library (PIL) for image processing, and the scipy package for multi-dimensional array searches. The heart of the algorithm uses a resample-and-search technique.

A multi-layered mosaic produced by the algorithm is typically assembled in a 3D modeling application, and then combined with other graphic elements to create the final piece of art.
