pgmtexture - Man Page
calculate textural features on a PGM image
This program is part of Netpbm(1).
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
- Inverse Difference Moment
- Sum Average
- Sum Variance
- Sum Entropy
- Difference Variance
- Difference Entropy
- Information Measures of Correlation
Maximal Correlation Coefficient

In addition to the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (most notably -quiet, see Common Options ), pgmtexture recognizes the following command line option:
- -d distance
The distance. Default is 1.
The method for finding the Maximal Correlation Coefficient, which requires finding the second largest eigenvalue of a matrix Q, does not always converge.
