Paper Abstract

"HYCLASS", a new hybrid classification method for remotely sensed multi-spectral images is proposed. This method consists of two procedures, the textural edge detection and texture classification. In the textural edge detection, the maximum likelihood classification (MLH) method is employed to find "the spectral edges", and the morphological filtering is employed to process the spectral edges into "the textural edges" by sharpening the opened curve parts of the spectral edges. In the texture classification, the supervised texture classification method based on normalized Zernike moment vector that the authors have already proposed. Some experiments using a simulated texture image and an actual airborne sensor image are conducted to evaluate the classification accuracy of the HYCLASS. The experimental results show that the HYCLASS can provide reasonable classification results in comparison with those by the conventional classification method.
