Paper Abstract

The fractal and correlation signatures of grayscale imagery are used to distinguish man-made areas of activity from natural background in surveillance imagery. The signatures are generated via computation of generalized dimensions as a function of scale and space. Image screening and natural clutter suppression methods can exploit the behavior of fractal and correlation signatures for generic geometric objects versus the predictable fractal behavior of natural backgrounds. Several different image screening methods have been investigated, using these multi-scale signatures to eliminate large areas of natural terrain from consideration and to cue image analysts to areas of interest.
