Please do help me how to create an "illuminant map" from an image
That is not an easy task. When you have two or more illuminants (light sources) illuminating a scene, it's not easy to figure out the relative illuminations each pixel took from each light source. There was a paper at the last Color Imaging Conference (Los Angeles 2012) where they showed an office scene illuminated by both overhead fluorescent lights, and outside daylight coming through the windows. Through some algorithm that I don't remember they were able to make such an illuminant map. You'd have to look up the paper but it's certainly not a few lines of code that I could share here.
