Morphological granulometries have been used to successfully discriminate textures in the context of classical feature-based classification. The features are typically the granulometric moments resulting from the pattern spectrum of the random image. This paper takes a different approach and uses the granulometric moments as inputs to a linear system that has been derived by classical optimization techniques for linear filters. The output of the system in a set of estimators that estimate the parameters of the model governing the distribution of the random set. These model parameters are assumed to be random variables possessing a prior distribution, so that the linear filter estimates these random variables based on granulometric moments. The methodology is applied to estimating the primary grain and intensity of a random Boolean model.
