                         is for practical applications to the analysis and characterization 
                         of natural objects. The effects of the partial fractality of real

                         spatially quantized images are investigated through a series of 
                         experimental measurements respectively to two Koch curves. 
                         Practical guidelines are established and discussed that can help 
                         in obtaining more precise and meaningful experimental results.
