The grey level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) is a measure of the texture of an image. It describes how often different combinations of pixel brightness values occur in an image. Based on this, several textural attributes can be calculated. These directional attributes can be used to determine isotropic and anisotropic areas. In anisotropic areas the information of directional GLCM-based attributes can be used for the estimation of fracture intensity, as well as for the determination of strike and dip of fractures.
