Fractal theory can be applied to distinguish the natural scenery and artificial scenery, because it can describe the irregularity of nature scenery. According to the characteristic of the camouflage net in grass, an improved computation method of fractal dimension is used to segment image in order and extract fractal dimension. According to contrastive analysis of experiments, the result shows that this method can distinguish camouflage net and grass and provide a new way of surface features of the model identification.
