Frequency domain representation of two dimensional gray­level images is used to develop a pattern
recognition method that is invariant to rotation, translation and scaling. Frequency domain representa­
tion is a natural feature detector that allows the use of only few directions of highest energy as training
data for a set of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). We developed a new algorithm that uses the spec­
tral information stored in these ANNs to compare a given image with a known pattern, determining the
relative translation between them and yielding a measure of their similarity. The representation and
method we adopted has the advantage of leaving only the rotation of the object as a free parameter to
be determined by the algorithm. We minimize the spectral resolution noise using Spectral Directional
