pgmtexture — calculate textural features on a PGM image

Synopsis

pgmtexture

[-d d]

[pgmfile]

Description

pgmtexture reads a PGM image as input and calculates textural features based on spatial dependence matrices at 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees for a distance d (default = 1).

Textural features include:

·
Angular Second Moment
·
Contrast
·
Correlation
·
Variance
·
Inverse Difference Moment
·
Sum Average
·
Sum Variance
·
Sum Entropy
·
Entropy
·
Difference Variance
·
Difference Entropy
·
Information Measures of Correlation
·
Maximal Correlation Coefficient

Limitations

The method for finding the Maximal Correlation Coefficient, which requires finding the second largest eigenvalue of a matrix Q, does not always converge.
