This paper explores the combining of powerful local texture descriptors and the advantages over single descriptors for texture classification. The proposed system is composed of three components: (i) highly discriminative and robust sorted random projections (SRP) features; (ii) a global Bag-of-Words (BoW) model; and (iii) the use of multiple kernel Support Vector Machines (SVMs) combining multiple features. The proposed system is also very simple, stemming from (1) the effortless extraction of
