In this assignment you will experiment with texture analysis, specifically the problem of texture classification. You will consider the ability of co-occurrence matrix based measures to discriminate between various natural textures.
A database of texture images is provided from the class home page at
Each image is 64x64 and is in PGM format. There are images of four different textures, namely, Asphalt, Concrete, Grass, and Rock. There 12 images of each type of texture taken under different lighting conditions.
You may code in any language of your choice. I would suggest that you consider MATLAB or the Motif based code used in your image processing class (look into /home/cs/faculty/goldgof/Motif) as your building block. The Motif based code will allow you to display images, to interact with them, and to add your own procedures. A document about the Motif code is available at Procopy (maybe filed under Digital Image Processing or Dr. Goldgof).
As a part of this assignment you have to
You need to submit a written report and a hard copy of the code you have written. And you have to demonstrate your code with Matt Clark. The written report is due at 11 am on March 25, 1997. The demonstrations have to be done during Matt Clark's office hours (12:15 pm to 1 pm) on March 25 and March 26, 1997.
