Apparatus for performing neighborhood transformations on data matrices for image processing and the like achieves processing speeds greater than conventional serial processors with an economy of memory through use of a plurality of serial neighborhood processors that simultaneously operate upon adjoining partitioned segments of a single data matrix. Continuity of transformation across adjoining segment boundaries is achieved by interconnecting these serial processors to provide each processor with data contained in the contiguous matrix segment being processed by a contiguous processor when processing a data element whose neighborhood elements are partially contained in that contiguous segment.
