Abstract
A new geometric indicator is proposed for analyzing and classifying infrared images. The indicator, which was named "formity", provides an objective estimate of the "nonuniformity" of an image in a very compact form. Derived from the quad tree theory, the indicator is relatively simple to apply and should be particularly useful in relation to large banks of images. Some typical results obtained from thermal images are presented to illustrate its properties.
