Abstract
This paper presents a method for the classification and coding of textures based upon the use of transform vector quantization. Techniques for texture classification and vector quantization similarly process small, nonoverlapping blocks of image data which are extracted independently from the image. Local spatial frequency features have been identified as being appropriate for texture classification, indicating that a transform vector quantization scheme should be capable of characterizing and classifying textured regions. A data set consisting of 7 natural textures is used to demonstrate the utility of this approach. The experimental results show acceptable classification rates and suggest avenuws for future research which will yield significant improvements in future work.
