Superresolution permits fine details to be observed that cannot be resolved by standard optical instruments. We demonstrate that superresolution is nothing more than an adaptation of degrees of freedom converted from the spatial domain to some other domains and vice versa. The tool used for the required conversion and adaptation is the Wigner chart. In addition, we show that the Wigner chart may be naturally applied for analyzing and understanding complex optical setups used for obtaining superresolution.
