In this chapter, typical applications of image-based technologies used for the analysis of fabric structure and texture are summarized and discussed. Among them, a new digital method, based on the dual side scanning and active grid model (AGM), is introduced to demonstrate how to identify the weave pattern of woven fabrics. Some preliminary experiments and discussions are also included to validate this method.
