Classes demonstrated

template<typename TInputImage, typename TOutputImage>
class DerivativeImageFilter : public itk::ImageToImageFilter<TInputImage, TOutputImage>

Computes the directional derivative of an image. The directional derivative at each pixel location is computed by convolution with a derivative operator of user-specified order.

SetOrder specifies the order of the derivative.

SetDirection specifies the direction of the derivative with respect to the coordinate axes of the image.
