In this paper, we propose a new feature for texture segmentation that is based on the pixel patterns and thus is independent of the variance of illumination. A gray scale image is transformed into a pattern map in which edges and lines (bars) used to characterize the texture information are classified by pattern matching. The Gabor filters can enhance edge features, however, are not effective in edge pattern classification. We extract the pattern templates from image patches by Independent… CONTINUE READING
