Nonlinear Classification of Multispectral Imagery Using Representation-Based Classifiers
AbstractThis paper investigates representation-based classification for multispectral imagery. Due to small spectral dimension, the performance of classification may be limited, and, in general, it is difficult to discriminate different classes with multispectral imagery. Nonlinear band generation method with explicit functions is proposed to use which can provide additional spectral information for multispectral image classification. Specifically, we propose the simple band ratio function, which can yield better performance than the nonlinear kernel method with implicit mapping function. Two representation-based classifiers—i.e., sparse representation classifier (SRC) and nearest regularized subspace (NRS) method—are evaluated on the nonlinearly generated datasets. Experimental results demonstrate that this dimensionality-expansion approach can outperform the traditional kernel method in terms of high classification accuracy and low computational cost when classifying multispectral imagery.
