This work aimed to answer two questions:
1. What information is used to distinguish categories of line drawings?
2. Do humans use similar information to discriminate scene categories?
The work came to these conclusions:
1. Counts of T, X, Y and arrow junctions as well as the intersection angles of these junctions seem to play an important role in human natural scene categorization.
2. Statistics of orientations as encoded in the spatial frequency spectrum (1) are less important for humans.
