This paper presents an approach for ink type recognition. Ink type classes will be derived from the physical properties of ink. Ink specific trace morphologies are considered as textures. From these discriminant texture features of the co-occurrence matrix will be derived. The proposed method for automated ink type recognition was tested using 62 different kinds of pens and refills. The achieved recognition result of 99.7% for 600 dpi and 98.4% for 300 dpi handwritings further promotes the study of trace morphologies in particular for application in forensic writer identification.
