The purpose of feature extraction technique in image processing is to represent the image in its compact and unique form of single values or matrix vector. Low level feature extraction involves automatic extraction of features from an image without doing any processing method. In this paper, we consider the use of high level feature extraction technique to investigate the characteristic of narrow and broad weed by implementing the 2 dimensional discrete wavelet transform (2D-DWT) as the processing method. Most transformation techniques produce coefficient values with the same size as the original image. Further processing of the coefficient values must be applied to extract the image feature vectors. In this paper, we propose an algorithm to implement feature extraction technique using the 2D-DWT and the extracted coefficients are used to represent the image for classification of narrow and broad weed. Results obtained suggest that the extracted 2D-DWT coefficients can uniquely represents the two different weed type.
