Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a method of classifying multi- channel images using a Markov random field monogrid or multiscale model. If the parameters of the model are known, the classification is called supervised and a training is necessary. If not, it is called unsupervised and requires an automatic parameter estimation. Then we compute an energy function of the system that we minimize using either deterministic relaxation techniques or stochastic methods, which gives us the classification. The multi-channel data take the form of multi-band aerial or satellite images as well as synthetic images.
