MathMap is a language for transforming existing images and producing entirely new ones. Think of it as the ultimate image and animation filter. This flexibility, however, comes at a price: Using MathMap to create a new transformation isn’t as simple as using some pre-built image manipulation filter. Instead, you have to precisely describe what MathMap should do. This usually requires a bit of math knowledge (for most tasks, high-school math is more than sufficient) and it is necessary to know the MathMap language.
