Agarwal, Anubhav and Manohar, Madhukar (2008) Rotation and Scale Invariant Texture Classification. BTech thesis.
Texture classification is very important in image analysis. Content based image retrieval, inspection of surfaces, object recognition by texture, document segmentation are few examples where texture classification plays a major role. 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. 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. The experimental results, based on different testing data sets for images from Brodatz album
with different orientations and scales, show that the implemented classification scheme outperforms other texture classification methods, its overall accuracy rate for joint rotation and scale invariance being 87.09 percent.
