Texture in Binary Images

Thomas Scheermesser and Olof Bryngdahl, University of Essen, Essen, Germany

IImage texture is one of the important parameters in the field of digital image processing. In displayed images, it affects the reproduction of the local average gray level, because usually there is a certain amount of pixel overlap. In image perception, it may result in the appearance of false contours between regions with different textures. There is a demand for a quantitative description of textural characteristics in the various fields of digital image processing, of which digital halftoning is one.
