I am able to compute the fractal dimension of a textured surface like elevation with a short script based on the blanket method described in Haidekker, Advanced Biomedical Image Analysis, 2011.
I also have a set of 100 "count surfaces" which display how many of a set of points fall into each pixel at each scale. It's tempting to subject the set of count surfaces to the same algorithm, but my instinct is that any resulting number -- ok, I gave in and computed D=2.16 -- would be meaningless.
Is it? Can you explain why, in layman's terms if possible?
