Texture classification is an important first step in image segmentation and image recognition. The classification algorithm must be able to overcome distortions, such as scale, aspect and rotation changes in the input texture. In this paper, a new fractal model for texture classification is presented. The model is based on fractional Brownian motion (FBM). It is also shown that this model is invariant to changes in incident light; empirical results are also given. The isotropic nature of Brownian motion is particularly useful for outdoor applications, where the viewing direction may change. Classification results of this model are presented; comparisons with other texture measurement models indicate that the incremental FBM (IFBM) model has better performance for the samples tested
