Why illuminant direction is fundamental to texture analysis

  title={Why illuminant direction is fundamental to texture analysis},
  author={Mike J. Chantler}
This paper shows that directed illumination used in the image acquisition process can act as a directional filter of three-dimensional texture. An image model of texture is presented which, given the illuminant vector, may used to predict the directional characteristics of image texture. Simulations and the results of laboratory experiments are presented that confirm the predicted directional filtering effects. The image model is used to predict the output of a directional texture measure… CONTINUE READING
