Hi Karl

The only Python wavelet library I've ever used is the one at


It works pretty well, if only for 1D and 2D cases.  IIRC, some of the
orthogonal wavelet transforms are separable, so you may be able to
construct a 3D transform using the 1D functions already implemented.

> I was just curious re. whether anyone on the list is aware of any multidimensional wavelet packages (either in python or with a python interface) - 3D and 4D is mainly what I'm looking for. I've searched a little and know there has been discussion and some development of wavelet packages for SciPy but I haven't kept up with that and it didn't look like their was anything multidimensional currently available or in the works. I don't need anything terribly fancy (e.g. just Haar wavelets would suffice) and can probably hack something but thought I'd check, both for selfish reasons (lazy !) and because if I'm going to do any work, contributing to a community effort should any already exist, is certainly preferable.
