Salient Local Binary Pattern for Ground-Based Cloud Classification


  • Ground-based cloud classification is challenging due to extreme variations in the appearance of clouds under different atmospheric conditions. Texture classification techniques have recently been introduced to deal with this issue. A novel texture descriptor, the salient local binary pattern (SLBP), is proposed for ground-based cloud classification. The SLBP takes advantage of the most frequently occurring patterns (the salient patterns) to capture descriptive information. This feature makes the SLBP robust to noise. Experimental results using ground-based cloud images demonstrate that the proposed method can achieve better results than current state-of-the-art methods.
