Paper Abstract

Principles of colour science have been widely used in applications of remote sensing, but few papers have reported the quantitative application of color principles in the processing of multi-spectral remote sensing images. in this paper, authors have developed a colour difference technique for the classification of multi-spectral remote sensing image according to the principles of colour science. it is demonstrated that the colour difference technique can be used in the classification of IKONOS multi-spectral remote sensing image, the results of image classification are correspond to human eye 's interpretation very well. in addition, the colour difference classification technique is very sensible to chromatic information in the multi-spectral remote sensing image, but has a luminance latitude. Therefore, the colour difference classification technique seems very adaptable to the classification ofuneven irradiance multi-spectral remote sensing image.
