A procedure is demonstrated for locating textural boundaries in the digital image representation of a natural scene. The technique involves development of an edge operator capable of integrating multiple textural features into a single boundary determination. The process is designed to simulate actual perception of textural discontinuities. Success of the system is demonstrated on pictures with prominent perceived boundaries not detectable by methods based only on differences in average brightness.
