In this paper, we describe work on Bayesian classifiers for distinguishing between homogeneous structures, textures, edges and junctions. We build semi–local classifiers from hand-labeled images to distinguish between these four different kinds of structures based on the concept of intrinsic dimensionality. The built classifier is tested on standard and non-standard images.
