Paper Abstract

The automatic mapping of land cover from satellite imagery requires optimal classification and spatial generalization procedures. Here we describe the use of functional ink neural networks, based on a flat perceptron net with an augmented feature vector, to generate high accuracy classification products. These can then be trained more rapidly than multi-layer perceptrons. The network output is then used to fix land cover class area statistics which control a low-level generalization procedure based on a combined iterative majority filtering and reduced class growing procedure.
