Scene classification is the task of determining the scene type in which a photograph was taken. In this paper we present a novel local descriptor suited for such a task: Oriented Texture Curves (OTC). Our descriptor captures the texture of a patch along multiple orientations, while maintaining robustness to illumination changes, geometric distortions and local contrast differences. We show that our descriptor outperforms all state-of-the-art descriptors for scene classification algorithms ondoi:10.1007/978-3-319-10584-0_25 fatcat:f64qvx66rrc3hg74nqjwtyk4ci
