Paper Abstract

Our objective was to develop a knowledge-based strategy for the classification, considered a cognitive process, of multisource data including remote sensing images. The main feature of our approach is the use of fuzzy sets as the representation framework. This strategy supports two supervised image classification procedures, one based on a fuzzy statistical classifier and the other on a feed-forward fuzzy trained neural network. Approximate reasoning techniques, based on fuzzy production rules, are applied to model the multifactorial evaluation process in which results from the classification of remote-sensing images are integrated with other data. An example of multisource remote-sensing data classification applied in fire prevention is presented together with numerical results and an experimental verification of the approach.
