Texture Analysis plays an important role in the interpretation, understanding and recognition of terrain, biomedical or microscopic images. To achieve high accuracy in classification the present paper proposes a new method on textons. Each texture analysis method depends upon how the selected texture features characterizes image. Whenever a new texture feature is derived it is tested whether it precisely classifies the textures. Here not only the texture features are important but also the way in which they are applied is also important and significant for a crucial, precise and accurate texture classification and analysis. The present paper proposes a new method on textons, for an efficient rotationally invariant texture classification. The proposed Texton Features (TF) evaluates the relationship between the values of neighboring pixels. The proposed classification algorithm evaluates the histogram based techniques on TF for a precise classification. The experimental results on various stone textures indicate the efficacy of the proposed method when compared to other methods.
