Balaji, Banoth (2007) Rotation and scale invariant texture classification using log polar wavelet energy signatures. MTech thesis.
Classification of texture images, especially those with different orientation and scale changes, is a challenging and important problem in image analysis and classification. This thesis proposes an effective scheme for rotation and scale invariant texture classification using log-polar wavelet signatures.The rotation and scale invariant feature extraction for a given image involves applying a log-polar transform to eliminate the rotation and scale effects, but at same time produce a row shifted log-polar image, which is then passed to an adaptive row shift invariant wavelet packet transform to eliminate the row shift effects. So,the output wavelet coefficients are rotation and scale invariant. The adaptive row shift invariant wavelet packet transform is quite efficient with only O(n*log n) complexity. A feature vector of the most dominant log-polar wavelet energy signatures extracted from each subband of wavelet coefficients is constructed for rotation and scale invariant texture classification. In the experiments, we employed a modified Mahalanobis classifier to classify a set of 12 distinct natural textures selected from the Brodatz album. The experimental results, based on different testing data sets for images with different orientations and scales, show that the implemented classification scheme using log- polar wavelet signatures outperforms other texture classification methods, its overall accuracy rate for joint rotation and scale invariance being 87.59 percent, demonstrating that the extracted energy signatures are effective rotation and scale invariant features.
