An original approach to texture-based classification of regions, for image indexing and retrieval, is presented. The system addresses automatic macro-textured ROI detection, and classification: we focus our attention on those objects that can be characterized by a texture as a whole, like trees, flowers, walls, clouds, and so on. The proposed architecture is based on the computation of the λ vector from each selected region, and classification of this feature by means of a pool of suitably trained support vector machines (SVM). This approach is an extension of the one previously developed by some of the authors to classify image regions on the basis of the geometrical shape of the objects they contain. Theoretical remarks, motivation of the approach, experimental setup, and the first satisfactory results on natural scenes are reported
