Rotation-invariant texture classification using a complete space-frequency model

George M. Haley and B. S. Manjunath, Member, IEEE


A method of rotation-invariant texture classification based on a complete space-frequency model is introduced. A polar, analytic form of a two-dimensional (2-D) Gabor wavelet is developed, and a multiresolution family of these wavelets is used to compute information-conserving microfeatures.From these microfeatures a micromodel, which characterizes spatially localized amplitude, frequency, and directional behavior of the texture, is formed. The essential characteristics of a texture sample, its macrofeatures, are derived from the estimated selected parameters of the micromodel. Classification of texture samples is based on the macromodel derived from a rotation invariant subset of macrofeatures. In experiments, comparatively high correct classification rates were obtained using large sample sets.
