Presents some results of using fractals and fractal ideas in both the modelling and analysis of textures. Much of the work is directed at applications related to studies of the seabed. The real data arrives in the form of sonar or video data. The sonar data is digitised and stored and analysed in image form. The data is complex and occupies large amounts of computer storage. There is a requirement to automatically segment different areas of texture, since the manual methods are slow and error prone. The texture is related to the composition of the surface sediments, and also the change in texture with time is useful as an aid to navigation
