Motivated by the discovery of the high level texture features responsible for perceptual grouping of textures [11] and the development of the Markov-Gibbs texture model with pairwise pixel interactions [9], we have recently proposed the method of feature based interaction maps (FBIM) and applied this new tool to the problem of pattern orientation [4] and rotation-invariant texture classification [7]. Experimental results have demonstrated that the FBIM approach can be used to recover the basic structural properties and orientation of a wide range of patterns, including weak structures.
