We develop a general framework to simultaneously exploit texture and shape characterization in multiscale image segmentation. By posing multiscale segmentation as a model selection problem, we invoke the powerful framework offered by minimum description length (MDL). This framework dictates that multiscale segmentation comprises multiscale texture characterization and multiscale shape coding. Analysis of current multiscale maximum a posteriori segmentation algorithms reveals that these algorithms implicitly use a shape coder with the aim to estimate the optimal MDL solution, but find only an approximate solution.
