This paper explores the template concept as defined in the University of Florida image algebra with special attention to computer representation of template operands and the implementation of image-template operations. We discuss some of the basic properties that support template decomposition and relate these properties to computer implementation structures. We also discuss the practical considerations that have led to provide users of the image algebra C++ class library (iac++) with neighborhoods and neighborhood operations and provide formal definitions for these concepts. We argue that neighborhoods represent an important concept which should not be ignored in image algebra. We then exploit properties of point set representation to yield a technique for automatic decomposition of neighborhoods employed in the iac++ class library and extend this technique to provide some initial techniques for template decomposition as well.
