Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hyperspectral remote sensing is currently a fast-moving area of not only research but also industrial development, where captured hyperspectral cubes provide abundant information with great potential in many different applications. In this Special Issue, we aim to compile state-of-the-art research on how to tackle the “big data” problem of extracting the most useful information out of the hyperspectral paradigm for remote sensing applications.

This Special Issue (Volume 2) is open to any researcher working on hyperspectral remote sensing data mining and data classification. Specific topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Denoising and enhancement;
  • Band selection and data reduction;
  • Supervised and unsupervised feature extraction and feature selection;
  • Compressive sensing and optimised data acquisition;
  • Spatial–spectral data fusion;
  • Spectral unmixing and super-resolution;
  • Deep learning approaches for data mining and data classification;
  • Visualisation of the data and features;
  • Fast implementation of the algorithms using a GPU, etc.;
  • Emerging new datasets and applications.

Deep network models rely on sufficient training samples to perform reasonably well, which has inevitably constrained their application in classification of hyperspectral images (HSIs) due to the limited availability of labeled data. To tackle this particular challenge, we propose a hybrid relation network, H-RNet, by combining three-dimensional (3-D) convolution neural networks (CNN) and two-dimensional (2-D) CNN to extract the spectral–spatial features whilst reducing the complexity of the network. In an end-to-end relation learning module, the sample pairing approach can effectively alleviate the problem of few labeled samples and learn correlations between samples more accurately for more effective classification. Experimental results on three publicly available datasets have fully demonstrated the superior performance of the proposed model in comparison to a few state-of-the-art methods. Full article

With the development of remote sensing technology, classification has become a meaningful way to explore the rich information in hyperspectral images (HSIs). However, various environmental factors may cause noise and shadow areas in HSIs, resulting in weak signals and difficulties in fully utilizing information. In addition, classification methods based on deep learning have made considerable progress, but features extracted from most networks have much redundancy. Therefore, a method based on two-dimensional dynamic stochastic resonance (2D DSR) shadow enhancement and convolutional neural network (CNN) classification combined with an attention mechanism (AM) for HSIs is proposed in this paper. Firstly, to protect the spatial correlation of HSIs, an iterative equation of 2D DSR based on the pixel neighborhood relationship was derived, which made it possible to perform matrix SR in the spatial dimension of the image, instead of one-dimensional vector resonance. Secondly, by using the noise in the shadow area to generate resonance, 2D DSR can help increase the signals in the shadow regions by preserving the spatial characteristics, and enhanced HSIs can be obtained. Then, a 3DCNN embedded with two efficient channel attention (ECA) modules and one convolutional block attention module (CBAM) was designed to make the most of critical features that significantly affect the classification accuracy by giving different weights. Finally, the performance of the proposed method was evaluated on a real-world HSI, and comparative studies were carried out. The experimental results showed that the proposed approach has promising prospects in HSIs’ shadow enhancement and information mining. Full article
