Paper Abstract

A physically-constrained localized linear mixing model suitable to process multi/hyperspectral imagery for Terrain Categorization (TERCAT) applications is investigated. Unlike the basic spectral linear mixing model that typically includes all potential endmembers in a set, simultaneously, in the model for each site in an image, the proposed approach restricts the local model at each site to a subset of endmembers, using localized spectral/spatial constraints to narrow the selection process. This approach is used to reduce the observed instability of conventional linear mixture analysis in addressing TERCAT problems for scenes with a large number of endmembers. Experiments are conducted on an 18 channel GERIS scene, airborne-collected over Northern Virginia, that contains a diverse range of terrain features, showing the benefit of this method as compared to the basic linear mixture analysis approach for TERCAT applications.
