Why does Fourier give me a different picture than ImagePeriodogram?

I want to take a 2D fourier transform of some data, but when I try this I get unexpected results. When I use ImagePeriodogram I get something that looks like I ...

DFT: Fourier Plot Not Giving Expected Result

I'm trying use Mathematica to compute the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) of a table of data points and then plot the result. As a test run, I took values from the function $x=f(t)=\sin(2\pi t) $ for ...
