Class Information
Number: 382/205
Name: Image analysis > Pattern recognition > Feature extraction > Local or regional features > Local neighborhood operations (e.g., 3x3 kernel, window, or matrix operator)
Description: Subject matter in which the image under analysis, together with any pattern* therein, is divided into a plurality of generally two-dimensional neighborhoods (also known as windows, sections, or regions), and a computation is executed on each neighborhood based on a local computational algorithm or on a set of mapping operators which transform various qualitative geometric properties of the image into quantitative values.
