30 June 1994 Fast fractal feature extraction for texture segmentation using wavelets
Author Affiliations +
In this work, we use the 1D Haar transform fractal estimation algorithm to calculate the local fractal dimension estimates of 2D texture data. The new algorithm provides directed fractal dimension estimates which are used as features for texture segmentation. The method is fast due to the pyramid structure of the Haar transform and nearly optimal in the maximum likelihood sense for fBm data. We compare the low complexity of this new algorithm with the complexity of existing fractal feature extraction techniques, and test our new method on fBm data and real Brodatz textures.
