CHAPTER 4

Classification of Remote Sensing Images

The advances in remote sensing sensors (see Chapter 1) allow description of the objects of interest with improved spatial and spectral resolutions. The excellent quality in the acquired data gives rise at the same time to challenging problems for automatic image classification1. This chapter considers these challenges. First, we present different classification problems that benefit from the use of remote sensing data and briefly present the solutions considered in the field. After the definition of the classification problem (Section 4.1.1), the main classification tasks will be presented in sections 4.2 to 4.4. Finally, Section 4.5 discusses the new challenges to be confronted in these fields, ...
