The representation of an image quantity (e.g., zero-crossings) over a range (which may in theory vary continuously) of scales at which the image is perceived. The `scale' concerned is generally the width parameter of a Gaussian function with which the image is convolved; thus at small scales the image detail is faithfully represented and at large scales the detail is blurred as the result tends to the image mean.
