Abstract:

A feature selection technique was applied to samples of synthetic aperture radar imagery. This technique was applied to four classes of terrain features on selected samples of radar imagery. The four classes considered were forests, cities, agricultural fields, and water. A feature vector was computed from samples of each class. A linear transformation was utilized to develop a new feature vector of reduced dimensionality. This transformation chooses those features that are most effective for performing class separability.
