Abstract—In this paper, we present a segmentation technique which joins a multi-scale texture based approach and a fuzzy segmentation method using the color gradient of Di Zenzo. Thus maps of homogeneous texture patterns are enhanced by edge localization. A topographic distance is used to calculate membership degrees to each region. Both lead to segmentation using a step of watershed flooding, with few parameters to set. Moreover computation complexity has been reduced to allow treatments of images in full size and colors.
