A new image segmentation method using a feature tree is proposed in this paper. The feature tree reflects the feature of an image. The proposed method is composed of two processes: (I) learning process and (II) clustering process. In the learning process, many efficient feature trees are made that construct a integrated tree. The integrated tree is used to segment images in the clustering process. Dividing an image is kept on from global point to local point. So, the proposed method can divide images considering not only the local property but also the global property. We applied the proposed method to some images, and obtained good results.
