Texture analysis exerts a key role in computer vision. However, the lack of a mathematical definition and a consensus taxonomy among various researchers made texture definition be based most often on heuristics. In this line of thought, the most efficient and modern descriptor is the Local Binary Pattern (LBP). This approach has proven to be quite effective considering the sensitivity, precision and accuracy in segmentation and classification of texture in digital images. However, in uncontrolled environments, i.e. when the images or videos are acquired without lighting control or orientation of the intrinsic texture structures, most models fail and consume exorbitant computational time. Our proposal, based on previous search supported by FAPESP, is named Location Mapped Pattern (LMP), which is a actually a generalization of LBP and has generated more robust results than the original LBP. It is a parametric model that needs to be investigated further to produce more efficient results an to increase its performance. In this work, we propose the continuous development of LMP based on two actions: performance and computational time. In terms of performance, we propose developing descriptors to classify textures, with more accuracy than the results obtained by the LBP, both in mammographic images and in uncontrolled environments, where the texture could be rotated, colored and acquired with non-uniform illumination. In order to reduce the computational time, we propose to evaluate the reduction in size of the descriptors without loss of performance. (AU)
