The volume of image data generated in ground-penetrating radar surveys can severely restrict the practicality of this site investigation technique. This is particularly true in situations where automatic analysis or interpretation is required, as segmentation and classification tasks that utilise multivariate data are critically affected by the volume and dimensionality of the data. A general-purpose unsupervised image segmentation system is presented here for the automatic detection of image regions exhibiting different visual texture properties. A suboptimal feature selection procedure is proposed to automatically select the set of texture features best suited for the particular application. The reduction in the size of the feature set both reduces the computation time and improves the accuracy of the final classification.
