Paper Abstract

Hyperspectral image visualization reduces high-dimensional spectral bands to three color channels, which are sought in order to explain well the nonlinear data characteristics that are hidden in the high-dimensional spectral bands. Despite the surge in the linear visualization techniques, the development of nonlinear visualization has been limited. The paper presents a new technique for visualization of hyperspectral image using t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding, called VHI-tSNE, which learns a nonlinear mapping between the high-dimensional spectral space and the three-dimensional color space. VHI-tSNE transforms hyperspectral data into bilateral probability similarities, and employs a heavy-tailed distribution in three-dimensional color space to alleviate the crowding problem and optimization problem in SNE technique. We evaluate the performance of VHI-tSNE in experiments on several hyperspectral imageries, in which we compare it to the performance of other state-of-art techniques. The results of experiments demonstrated the strength of the proposed technique.
