Summary This paper introduces a novel method to detect texture objects from satellite images. First, a hierarchical strategy is developed to extract texture objects according to their roughness. Then, an artificial immune approach is presented to automatically generate segmentation thresholds and texture filters, which are used in the hierarchical strategy. In this approach, texture objects are regarded as antigens, and texture object filters and segmentation thresholds are regarded as antibodies. The clonal selection algorithm inspired by human immune system is employed to evolve antibodies. The population of antibodies is iteratively evaluated according to a statistical performance index corresponding to object detection ability, and evolves into the optimal antibody using the evolution principles of the clonal selection. Experimental results of texture object detection on satellite images are presented to illustrate the merit and feasibility of the proposed method.
