This correspondence describes a method of dividing a picture into differently textured regions by thresholding the values of a suitable local picture property. The approach used is a generalization to natural textures of a technique recently proposed by Tsuji. The examples given involve textures that differ in coarseness; a method of estimating texture coarseness by analysis of local property values is also described.
Picture processing, pattern recognition, segmentation, texture analysis.
