Two-dimensional geometric texture synthesis is the geometric analogue of raster-based texture synthesis. An absence of conventional evaluation procedures in recent synthesis attempts demands an inquiry into the visual significance of synthesized results. In this paper, we report on two psychophysical experiments that explore how people understand notions of similarity in geometric textures. We present perceptual metrics and human texture generation features that are crucial for future researchers when developing and assessing the success of their algorithms.
