In this work, we introduced an unsupervised segmentation and classification method based on combining two approaches: the wavelet analysis and a neural network indexation technique. The wavelet approach exploits multispectral and multiresolution analysis, providing texture description, which is a very interesting attribute. The resulting extracted features are used to perform the classification of a database of pollen grain images. This classification is performed by a neural network together with a clustering algorithm.
