Abstract

This paper presents an approach to textured image segmentation. It is more exactly intended for detecting and extracting compact objects from an image. Because multiresolution or pyramidal techniques set problems, local-base pyramids are introduced. They are called "local pyramids" and simulate the human vision in its attention focusing process. Moreover, our method has the advantage to be adaptive with respect to the image texture.
