Abstract

Unsupervised as well as supervised classification of multi-spectral remote sensing data can be done by statistical as well as by neural network classifiers. A software tool is used to study training and classification processes in n-dimensional feature space. This tool allows visualisation of the data points in feature space, of the individually classified clusters and of the decision boundaries of the classifier. Image sequences are used to visualise higher-dimensional feature spaces as well as dynamic processes such as the training of neural networks or the effect of this training on an image to be classified. Finally, an example is given of a combined classification scheme where visualisation is used in order to validate the approach.
