A two-stage method of image segmentation based on gray level cooccurrence matrices is described. An analysis of the distributions within a cooccurrence matrix defines an initial pixel classification into both region and interior or boundary designations. Local consistency of pixel classification is then implemented by minimizing the entropy of local information, where region information is expressed via conditional probabilities estimated from the cooccurrence matrices, and boundary information via conditional probabilities which are determined a priori. The method robustly segments an image into homogeneous areas and generates an edge map. The technique extends easily to general edge operators. An example is given for the Canny operator. Applications to synthetic and forward-looking infrared (FLIR) images are given
