Links between the fractal Hausdorff-dimension, the Fourier transform of 2D scenes and image segmentation by texture are discussed. It is shown that the fractal Hausdorff-dimension can be derived by integration of the intensity of the spatial frequency domain (i.e. the Fourier plane) over a set of different band-limited spatial filters. The difference between a computational and optical approach to determine the Hausdorff-dimension are shown, with advantages of both methods discussed. Possible future directions of research/improvements are mentioned. Natural and simulated scenes are considered which apply to a wide range of situations in the agricultural and food industry.
