Abstract

Multilayer feed-forward perceptron networks have been used to classify high resolution remotely-sensed satellite data for land cover mapping. Experiments on a test area in southern France using multitemporal multispectral images from the SPOT-1 satellite have demonstrated the potential of neural networks for discriminating large numbers of ground cover classes. An average classification accuracy of the order of 84% has been obtained for 20 classes.
