Affine Texture Analysis with Scale-Area Histogram
A major problem of texture analysis is that textures in the real world are often not uniform due to variations in orientation, scale, or other visual appearance. In this paper, affine texture analysis with texel scale-area histogram is presented. A textural image is decomposed into a set of scale images and each scale image consists of square texels of the same size. The scale-area histogram of texel is used as texture feature for multi-scale texture analysis and dominant texture scale analysis. Measurement of the dominant texel sizes of textural images with different rotation angles and spatial scales indicates that rotational and scaled transformations of textural image result in the motion of translation in scale-area histogram.
