Based on a differential box counting method and a gliding-box algorithm, a new method for estimating the lacunarity of grey scale digital image surfaces is introduced, and directionality of lacunarity defined. To test the performance of the new lacunarity measure, a Brodatz texture image mosaic is employed and several other texture analysis approaches are also applied to the texture mosaic. Quantitative comparison shows that the new lacunarity estimation method for grey-scale images can provide more accurate texture measurements than some existing lacunarity measures, the grey level co-occurrence matrix based texture measures, the Min-Max operator, and the fractal dimension.
