FRACAM Cell Phone Application to Measure Box Counting Dimension

  title={FRACAM Cell Phone Application to Measure Box Counting Dimension},
  author={G. Wurzer and W. Lorenz},
There are two kinds of algorithms: those that are ‘better’ with respect to accuracy and those that are ‘faster’. In the past, fractal analysis by means of box-counting including both, binary and greyscale analysis has been focused on the former. In our work, however, we want to aim at the second category: algorithms that are fast and easy to use, without losing view on significance. To this end we have devised a cell phone application which let users grasp and analyse photographs regarding the… Expand

BACKGROUND In the search for a deeper understanding of aesthetic quality in architecture, complexity of a design provides a possible area of comparison. In further detail, varying degrees ofExpand


Combining Complexity and Harmony by the Box-Counting Method
When Benoit Mandelbrot raised the question about the length of Britain’s coastline in 1967, this was a major step towards formulating the theory of fractals, which also led to a new understanding ofExpand
Estimating the Fractal Dimension of Architecture: Using two Measurement Methods implemented in AutoCAD by VBA
First measurements indicate promising results for indicating the distinction between what B. Mandelbrot called scalebound and scaling buildings. Expand
The Fractal Analysis of Architecture: Calibrating the Box-Counting Method Using Scaling Coefficient and Grid Disposition Variables
In this paper the computational version of the box-counting approach is presented along with its methodological variables and nine mathematical fractals with known dimensions are tested using this method to identify the optimal approach to the scaling coefficient and grid disposition variables.

Complexity across scales in the work of Le Corbusier, Using box-counting as a method for analysing facades
Since Benoît Mandelbrot raised the question about the length of Britain’s coastline in 1967, it has become obvious that fractal geometry is appropriate for describing irregular forms. In 1996 CarlExpand

Abstract.Daniele Capo tests certain concepts that are proper to fractal geometry with regards to architectural elements. The purpose is not to show that the architectural orders are true fractalExpand

An Efficient Differential Box-Counting Approach to Compute Fractal Dimension of Image
An efficient differential box-counting approach to estimate fractal dimension is proposed and by comparison with four other methods, it has been shown that the method is both efficient and accurate. Expand
Measurability of Loos' rejection of the ornament - Using box-counting as a method for analysing facades
The author further develops the possibilities of describing facades geometrically by using an implementation of the fractal analytical method, especially created for facades, as well as considers other aspects of Loos' design such as space as well. Expand
We describe new families of random fractals, referred to as "V - variable", which are intermediate between the notions of deterministic and of standard random fractals. The parameter V describes theExpand
In search of new computer tools: what does Bovill really measure in architecture?
The possibilities of using Box-Counting Dimension (one of the fractal dimension of Mandelbrot) in design is discussed, which remains doubtful, however, whether in the case of a different selection of components measured the results would have been confirmed. Expand
