Paper Abstract

Contextual classification methods, which require the extraction of complex spatial information over a range of scales, from fine details in local areas to large features that extend across the image, are necessary in many remote sensing image classification studies. This work presents a supervised adaptive object recognition model which integrates scale-space filtering techniques for feature extraction within a neural classification procedure based on multilayer perceptron (MLP). The salient aspect of the model is the integration within the back-propagation learning task of the search of the most adequate filter parameters. The experimental evaluation of the method has been conducted coping with object recognition in high-resolution remote sensing imagery. To investigate whether the strategy can be considered an alternative to conventional procedures the results were compared with those obtained by a well known contextual classification scheme.
