Paper Abstract

An initial pixel classification into both region class and interior or boundary designation is made based on an analysis of the distributions within the grey level cooccurrence matrices of an image. Local consistency of classification is then implemented by minimising the local entropy of region and boundary information. This is a robust way of simultaneously segmenting an image into texturally homogeneous areas with a thresholded edge map. Examples are shown using forward looking infrared (FLIR) images. The technique has been extended to cover any digital edge operator and an example is shown for the Spacek operator.
