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 ▫.

Calculating GLCM Texture

To create multiple GLCMs, specify an array of offsets to the graycomatrix function. You can also derive several statistical measures from the GLCM. Because the processing required to calculate a GLCM for the full dynamic range of an image is prohibitive, graycomatrix scales the input image.

The gray-level co-occurrence matrix can reveal certain properties about the spatial distribution of the gray levels in the texture image. These functions can provide useful information about the texture of an image but cannot provide information about shape, i.

However, a single GLCM might not be enough to describe the textural features of gcm input image. Download Texture tutorial including illustrations, examples and exercises with answers 1. 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. 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.


Element 1,3 in the GLCM has the hlcm 0 because there are no instances of two horizontally adjacent pixels with the values 1 and 3. For example, a single horizontal offset might not be sensitive to texture with a vertical orientation. The toolbox provides functions to create a GLCM and derive statistical measurements from it.

Read in a grayscale image and display it.

The example calculates the contrast and correlation. Click on a link below to connect directly with the main sections in this tutorial.

Background information is provided to answer the questions arising from 15 years of use of the tutorial, and increased titorial experience of the author in teaching and research. The number of gray levels determines the size of the GLCM. This GLCM texture tutorial was developed to help such people, and it has been tutoria extensively world-wide tutoril Provides the sum of squared elements in the GLCM.

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. For this reason, graycomatrix can create multiple GLCMs for a single input image.

Some information is tutogial to make the material accessible to specialists in fields other than remote sensing, for example medical imaging and industrial quality control. 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.


Call the graycomatrix function specifying the offsets. Explanations and examples are concentrated on use in a landscape scale and perspective glxm enhancing classification accuracy, particularly in the cases where spatial arrangement of tonal spectral variability provides independent data relevant to the class identification. This example creates an offset that specifies four directions and 4 distances for each direction.

The original works are necessarily condensed and mathematical, making the process difficult to understand for the student or front-line image analyst. You specify the statistics you want when you call the graycoprops function.

You specify these offsets as a p -by-2 array of integers. 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.

To control the number of gray levels in the GLCM and the scaling of intensity values, using the NumLevels and the GrayLimits parameters of the graycomatrix function.

It leads users through the practical construction and use tutorual a small sample image, with the aim of deep understanding of the purpose, capabilities and limitations of this set of descriptive statistics.
