Paper Abstract

We have performed a study to identify optimal texture parameters for woodland segmentation in a highly non-homogeneous urban area from a temperate-zone panchromatic IKONOS image. Texture images are produced with the sum- and difference-histograms depend on two parameters: window size f and displacement step p. The four texture features yielding the best discrimination between classes are the mean, contrast, correlation and standard deviation. The f-p combinations 17-1, 17-2, 35-1 and 35-2 are those which give the best performance, with an average classification rate of 90%.
