This study developed texture extraction techniques for classifying natural background scenes using singular values features. Singular values (obtained using singular value decomposition) were used to produce a reduced one-dimensional feature space of texture attributes of natural scene regions. Scenes with tree, grass, and water regions were taken from FLIR imagery. Classification error was determined using a Bayes error estimate and Bhattacharyya distance was used to quantify separation of features between regions. Although there were variations within regional texture samples, good classification results were obtained using the singular value features.
