Drzewiecki W., Wawrzaszek A., Aleksandrowicz S., Krupinski M., Bernat K. Comparison of selected textural features as global content-based descriptors of VHR satellite image. Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), 2013 IEEE International
The paper presents the results of the study of usefulness of selected textural features for describing the content of image chips (1024 by 1024 pixels) cut from WorldView-2 panchromatic images. Several texture analysis techniques were applied to calculate 290 different global image descriptors. These features together with 4 histogram-based characteristics formed the set of classification features. Decision trees were used to classify the images into broad land cover categories. Performance of each group of textural characteristics was assessed and compared to the results of classification based on all calculated characteristics.
