Feature Extraction

Feature Extraction

Visual information contained in images is usually represented by low-level feature descriptors focusing on different types of information, such as color, texture, and shape. An adequate feature descriptor is able to discriminate between regions with different characteristics and it allows similar regions to be grouped together even when captured under noisy conditions. However, it is usually difficult to have a single feature descriptor adequate for many application domains; this has motivated researchers to develop a variety of feature extraction methods.
