Texture features are useful for segmentation of high-resolution satellite imagery.
This paper presents an efficient feature extraction method that considers the
spatial and cross-band relationships of pixels in multispectral or colour images.
The texture feature of an image region is represented by the joint distribution of
two texture measures calculated from the first two principal components (PCs).
Similarly, the spectral feature of the region is the joint distribution of greyscale
pixel values of the two PCs. The texture distributions computed by a rotation
invariant form of local binary patterns (LBP) and spectral distributions are adaptively
combined into coarse-to-fine segmentation based on integrated multiple
features (SIMF). The feasibility and effectiveness of the SIMF segmentation
approach is evaluated with multispectral high-resolution satellite imagery and
colour textured mosaic images under different conditions.
