Abstract:The present study reviewed some of the critical pre-processing steps required for otolith shape characterisation for automatic classification with heterogeneous distributed data. A common procedure for optimising automatic classification is to apply data pre-processing in order to reduce the dimension of vector inputs. One of the key aspects of these pre-processing methods is the type of codification method used for describing the otolith contour. Two types of codification methods (Cartesian and Polar) were evaluated, and the limitations (loss of information) and the benefits (invariance to affine transformations) associated with each method were pointed out. The comparative study was developed using four types of shape descriptors (morphological, statistical, spectral and multiscale), and focused on data codification techniques and their effects on extracting shape features for automatic classification. A new method derived from the Karhunen–Loève transformation was proposed as the main procedure for standardising the codification of the otolith contours.
