<p>The generic issue of clustering/grouping is addressed. Recent research, both in computer and human vision, suggests the use of joint spatial/spatial-frequency (s/sf) representations. The spectrogram, the difference of Gaussians representation, the Gabor representation, and the Wigner distribution are discussed and compared. It is noted that the Wigner distribution gives superior joint resolution. Experimental results in the area of texture segmentation and Gestalt grouping using the Wigner distribution are presented, proving the feasibility of using s/sf representations for low-level (early, preattentive) vision.</p>
