Texture is the term used to characterize the surface of a given object and it is unquestionably one of the main features used in computer vision and pattern recognition. Computer vision researchers have used measures of texture to segment scenes and discriminate between different objects. Psychophysicists have studied texture for knowledge about human low-level visual information processing. It has been assumed that a solution to the texture analysis problem will greatly advance the computer vision and pattern recognition field. But, in spite of its importance, texture lacks a precise definition.
