The automatic mapping of land cover from satellite imagery requires optimal classification and spatial generalisation procedures. Here the use of functional link neural networks is described. These are based on a flat perceptron net with an augmented feature vector, to generate high accuracy classification products. They can then be trained more rapidly than multi-layer perceptrons. The network output is used to fix land cover class area statistics which control a low-level generalisation procedure based on a combined iterative majority filtering and reduced class growing procedure.
