Paper Abstract

We present a set of multiscale, multidirectional, rotation-invariant features for color texture characterization. The proposed model is based on the ranklet transform, a technique relying on the calculation of the relative rank of the intensity level of neighboring pixels. Color and texture are merged into a compact descriptor by computing the ranklet transform of each color channel separately and of couples of color channels jointly. Robustness against rotation is based on the use of circularly symmetric neighborhoods together with the discrete Fourier transform. Experimental results demonstrate that the approach shows good robustness and accuracy.
