LBP image Detection

Is it somehow possible to use operators for the LBP (Local Binary Pattern) Image detection of an image?

I recently read about LBP, and how useful it is for image classification (e.g for textures). Basically, each image is transformed into a grayscale image. Then for each pixel, the neighbourhood of pixel gray values is considered with respect to the center pixel. Then a threshold (bigger = 1, smaller = 0) is applied to pixel grayscale values. The 8 obtained values is transformed into 8 bit and then into decimal number.  At the end, you obtain a histogram of counts of the decimal numbers that you obtian, which is characteristic for the image structure..

Is there any way to do this with rapidminer operators?

    It is my experience that it's faster to preprocess your images with Image J and next import this data into RM. There are other similar algo's out to determineren interest points. Recently FB made their algo's available for image mining

    Hello Fred,

    the LBP detector is part of the image processing extension.


    I sent you the in PM link for download.


    Best wishes,
