However, this kind of disadvantage can be perfectly resolved by NSST.
The most important feature of NSST is its appropriate representation of direction feature parts, like textures or edges.
A digital watermarking scheme based on NSST has been described in this paper.

Prior to this study, the NSST system was used by the university at the graduate level to track nurse practitioner clinical experiences.
While none had previous experience with the NSST software, each was an early adopter of the tracking system.
PROCEDURES AND MEASURES At the beginning of the semester, students and faculty were provided with a detailed orientation to data entry, storage, and retrieval processes in addition to information about the nuances of the NSST system.
The quantitative items required students and faculty to address aspects of their experience with NSST including capacity of the tracking system to maintain records of clinical experiences, utility of the software, and overall satisfaction with the tracking system.
Narrative responses were read repeatedly, and general themes related to using the NSST system as a means of tracking clinical experiences were identified.
Discussion UTILITY OF THE NSST As a response to the first research question, nonparametric analysis revealed that statistically significant (p < .
