Using a Gray-Level Co-Occurrence Matrix (GLCM). The texture filter functions provide a statistical view of texture based on the image histogram. These functions. Gray Level Co-Occurrence Matrix (Haralick et al. ) texture is a powerful image feature for image analysis. The glcm package provides a easy-to-use function. -Image Classification-. Gray Level Co-Occurrence Matrix. (GLCM) The GLCM is created from a gray-scale ▫.

The number of gray levels determines the size of the GLCM.

Tutoral element i,j in the resultant glcm is simply the sum tutorjal the number of times that the pixel with value i occurred in the specified spatial relationship to a pixel with value j in the input image. The toolbox provides functions to create a GLCM and derive statistical measurements from it. The graycomatrix function creates a gray-level co-occurrence matrix GLCM by calculating how often a pixel with the intensity gray-level value i occurs in a specific spatial relationship to a pixel with the value j.

Although this tutorial is not published by a professional journal, it has undergone extensive peer review by third-party reviewers at the request of the author.

To create multiple GLCMs, specify an array of offsets to the graycomatrix function.


These functions can provide useful information about the texture of an image but cannot provide information about shape, i. Also known as uniformity or the angular second moment. Background information is provided to tutkrial the questions arising from 15 years of use of the tutorial, and increased practical experience of the author in teaching and research.

Refereed No Of use generally for students of intermediate or advanced undergraduate remote sensing classes, and graduate classes in remote sensing, landscape ecology, GIS and other fields using rasters as the basis glcj analysis. This GLCM texture tutorial was developed to tutoriall such people, and it has been used extensively world-wide since For detailed information about these statistics, see the graycoprops reference page.

These statistics provide information about the texture of an image. JavaScript is disabled for your browser.

Main menu Home Tutorial: The “NEXT” button at the bottom of the page takes you through the tutorial in sequence. A basic bibliography is provided for research that has promoted the field of remote sensing GLCM texture; research projects that simply make use of it are not systematically covered.

The gray-level co-occurrence matrix can reveal certain tlcm about the spatial distribution of the gray levels in the texture image. In this case, the input image is represented by 16 GLCMs.

Also useful for researchers undertaking the use of texture in classification and other image analysis fields. There are exercises to perform. It leads users through the practical construction and use of a small sample image, with the aim of deep understanding of the purpose, capabilities and limitations of this set of descriptive statistics.

When citing, please give the current version and its date. You specify the statistics you want when you call the graycoprops function. If you examine the input image closely, you can see that certain vertical elements in the image have a periodic pattern that repeats every seven pixels.


Calculating GLCM Texture

Plotting the Correlation This example shows how to create a set of GLCMs and derive statistics from them and illustrates how the statistics returned by graycoprops have a direct relationship to the original input image.

By default, the spatial relationship is defined as the pixel of interest and the pixel to its immediate right horizontally adjacentbut you can specify other spatial relationships between the two pixels.

Because the processing required to calculate a GLCM for the full dynamic range of an image is prohibitive, graycomatrix scales the input image.

Explanations and examples are concentrated on use in a landscape scale and perspective for enhancing classification accuracy, particularly in the cases where spatial arrangement of tonal spectral variability provides independent data relevant to the class identification. See the graycomatrix reference page for more information. Metadata Show full item record. Grey-Level Co-occurrence Matrix texture measurements have been the workhorse of image texture since they were proposed by Haralick in the s.

You can also derive several statistical measures from the GLCM. For example, if most of the entries in the GLCM are concentrated along the diagonal, the texture is coarse with respect to the specified offset.

However the author is not an expert in these fields and texture’s use there is not covered in detail. This example creates an offset that specifies four directions and 4 distances for each direction. For example, you can define an array of offsets that specify four directions horizontal, vertical, and two diagonals and four distances.
