Paper Abstract

In order to improve the classification accuracy, quotient space theory was applied in the classification of polarimetric SAR (PolSAR) image. Firstly, Yamaguchi decomposition method is adopted, which can get the polarimetric characteristic of the image. At the same time, Gray level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) and Gabor wavelet are used to get texture feature, respectively. Secondly, combined with texture feature and polarimetric characteristic, Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier is used for initial classification to establish different granularity spaces. Finally, according to the quotient space granularity synthetic theory, we merge and reason the different quotient spaces to get the comprehensive classification result. Method proposed in this paper is tested with L-band AIRSAR of San Francisco bay. The result shows that the comprehensive classification result based on the theory of quotient space is superior to the classification result of single granularity space.
