Paper Abstract

Multispectral/hyperspectral imaging spectrometry in earth remote sensing applications mostly focuses on determining the identity and abundance of materials in a geographic area of interest. Without any prior knowledge, however, it is generally very difficult to identify and determine how many endmembers reside in a scene. We cope with this limitation by estimating the number of endmembers using a noise- adjusted version of the transformed Gerschgorin disk approach (NATGD). This estimated result is then applied to a noise-adjusted version of fast independent component analysis (NAFICA). Experimental results indicate that NAFICA offers a new approach for unsupervised signature extraction and separation in hyperspectral images. © 2000 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
