Paper Abstract

This article addresses the application of pattern recognition techniques for the analysis of urban and rural areas based on high resolution panchromatic space-borne imagery. In particular, we focus on the problem of finding stable features that allow one to distinguish between urban, industry, and vegetation, categories that are important for understanding the urban pressure on rural areas. The novelty of the paper is the detailed and thorough analysis of the usability of more than 30 texture features in this type of analysis. It is concluded that for the application and the data at hand the homogeneity and contrast features derived from the gray level co-occurrence matrix are the most successful for SPOT panchromatic data.
