Abstract: This paper proposes a novel algorithm for the automatic coarse classification of iris images using a box-counting method to estimate the fractal dimensions of the iris. First, the iris image is segmented into sixteen blocks, eight belonging to an upper group and eight to a lower group. We then calculate the fractal dimension value of these image blocks and take the mean value of the fractal dimension as the upper and the lower group fractal dimensions. Finally, all the iris images are classified into four categories in accordance with the upper and the lower group fractal dimensions. This classification method has been tested and evaluated on 872 iris cases, and the proportions of these categories in our database are 5.50%, 38.54%, 21.79%, and 34.17%. The iris images are classified with two algorithms, the double threshold algorithm, which classifies iris images with an accuracy of 94.61%, and the backpropagation algorithm, which is 93.23% accurate. When we allow for the border effect, the double threshold algorithm is 98.28% accurate.
