Abstract : We report an attempt to derive simple low level features which may readily be extracted from an image. The features may be used to provide a classification of objects, so acting as a cue to aid further recognition. It is shown that such an approach may find applications in the early stages of image analysis for the classification of objects in an open world situation. The method is illustrated by application of classification rules based on an estimate of line wigglyness (fractal dimension) and analysis of the directional edgel statistics.
