This filter turns images into blueprints, as seen on TV shows like the History Channel, or Mythbusters, etc. Works best with fairly flat images, like illustrations and pictures without a lot of perspective. Will automatically resize for non-square images. It finds areas of low contrast (like sky or white paper) and fills it with grid. Use the 'Grid Zoom' control to fine tune the grid to a particular scale (like 10m = 1 grid) if you're doing floorplans.
