Automatic cloud classification has attracted more and more attention with the increasing development of whole sky imagers, but it is still in progress for ground-based cloud observation. This paper proposes a new cloud classification method, named bag of micro-structures (BoMS). This method treats an all-sky image as a collection of microstructures mapped from image patches, rather than a collection of pixels. It represents the image with a weighted histogram of micro-structures. Based on this… CONTINUE READING
