Paper Abstract

With its invariant property in reflectance based spectral signature, hyperspectral imagery has gained a prominent role in material identification and automatic target recognition since the late 1980's. Hyperspectral imagery loses its power when the targets are not directly visible to the sensor system. To conceal the targets, however, certain human actions are required which creates another type of signature like textural patterns that are unnatural in comparison to its surrounding. This paper examines how texture features can be exploited from a hyperspectral image cube for object recognition n general, and disturbed earth in particular under Susquehanna Resources and Environment's IMaG system, which integrates image processing, multisource analysis and GIS into one single environment.
