Abstract:

A third-order co-occurrence texture analysis 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 fracture vector was computed from samples of each class. A linear feature selection technique was applied for dimensionality reduction, and a pseudo-inverse classifier was developed. This classifier was applied to the original training samples as well as to other samples from the same imagery. Keywords include Texture analysis Pattern recognition and Radar imagery.
