This paper describes a quick way to form image characteristics. The moment invariants Xy are taken as attributes. It is proposed to use a parallel-recursive algorithm to calculate the generalized moments in a “sliding window” on the image, and then approximate the values of the invariants by them. This method is more efficient computationally as compared to the direct calculation.
