Texture Classification System Based on 2D-DOST Feature Extraction Method and LS-SVM Classifier

943 249


In this paper, a new 2D-DOST (Two-Dimensional Discrete Orthonormal Stockwell Transform) and LS-SVM (Least Squares Support Vector Machines) based classifier system is proposed for classification of texture images. The proposed system contains two main stages. These stages are feature extraction and classification. In the feature extraction stage, the distinguishing feature vectors which represent descriptive features of texture images are obtained by using a 2D-DOST based feature extraction method. In the classification stage, the texture images are classified by the LS-SVM since this classifier has high success rate and accuracy. The training of LS-SVM is performed on the distinguishing feature vector of each texture component. Texture samples are recognized by the test data applied to the input of trained LS-SVM classifier. Performance evaluations of the proposed method are carried on different datasets obtained from sub-images. These datasets include both the normal texture images and noise added images. Sub-images into datasets are derived from Brodatz and Kylberg texture images database. Gaussian and Salt & Pepper noise with different levels are used for creating noisy datasets. According to the study results, the proposed 2D-DOST and LS-SVM based classifier has a capability of classifying texture images with high success rate and noise robustness.
