In this investigation, the characteristics of the average local variance (ALV) function is investigated through the acquisition of images at different spatial resolutions of constructed scenes of regular patterns of black and white squares. It is shown that the ALV plot consistently peaks at a spatial resolution in which the pixels has a size corresponding(More)
The method of average local variance (ALV) computes the mean of the standard deviation values derived for a 3/spl times/3 moving window on a successively coarsened image to produce a function of ALV versus spatial resolution. In developing ALV, the authors used approximately a doubling of the pixel size at each coarsening of the image. They hypothesized(More)
