<p><b>Abstract</b>—Versions of the Gibbs Sampler are derived for the analysis of data from the hidden Markov Mesh random fields sometimes used in image analysis. This provides a numerical approach to the otherwise intractable Bayesian analysis of these problems. Detailed formulation is provided for particular examples based on Devijver's [<ref rid="bibi12964" type="bib">4</ref>] Markov Mesh model, and the <tt>BUGS</tt> [<ref rid="bibi129620" type="bib">20</ref>] package is used to do the computations. Theoretical aspects are discussed and a numerical study, based on image analysis, is reported.</p>
