<p><b>Abstract</b>—The Trace transform proposed, a generalization of the Radon transform, consists of tracing an image with straight lines along which certain functionals of the image function are calculated. Different functionals that can be used may be invariant to different transformations of the image. The paper presents the properties the functionals must have in order to be useful in three different applications of the method: construction of invariant features to rotation, translation and scaling of the image, construction of sensitive features to the parameters of rotation, translation and scaling of the image, and construction of features that may correlate well with a certain phenomenon we wish to monitor.</p>
