Comparison of Classification Algorithms and Training Sample Sizes in Urban Land Classification with Landsat Thematic Mapper Imagery

Comparison of Classification Algorithms and Training Sample Sizes in Urban Land Classification with Landsat Thematic Mapper Imagery | Remote Sensing News | Scoop.it
Abstract: Although a large number of new image classification algorithms have been developed, they are rarely tested with the same classification task. In this research, with the same Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) data set and the same classification scheme over Guangzhou City, China, we tested two unsupervised and 13 supervised classification algorithms, including a number of machine learning algorithms that became popular in remote sensing during the past 20 years. Our analysis focused primarily on the spectral information provided by the TM data. We assessed all algorithms in a per-pixel classification decision experiment and all supervised algorithms in a segment-based experiment. We found that when sufficiently representative training samples were used, most algorithms performed reasonably well. Lack of training samples led to greater classification accuracy discrepancies than classification algorithms themselves. Some algorithms were more tolerable to insufficient (less representative) training samples than others. Many algorithms improved the overall accuracy marginally with per-segment decision making.Keywords: machine learning; maximum likelihood classification; logistic regression; support vector machine; tree classifiers; random forests

“Privacy Issues Raise Concerns for Remote Sensing”

“Privacy Issues Raise Concerns for Remote Sensing” | Remote Sensing News | Scoop.it

As unmanned aerial systems (UAS) become more prevalent in the skies, the United States is engaged in spirited conversation about their impact on the constitutional guarantees of privacy and free speech. Over the next 10 years, tens of thousands of these vehicles could be safely darting in our national airspace, providing a wealth of valuable services to homeowners, ranchers, farmers, journalists and businesses. Many of these vehicles will be equipped with remote sensing technology enabling the identification of individuals. This technological leap forward brings with it challenges to our concept of “privacy” and “free speech” our society has not yet faced.

For example, if you do not “own” the air above your property, can individuals, businesses or government officials fly their camera over it and record high resolution video of your barbecue and identify everyone gathered there? Can a media organization or law enforcement agency “virtually” follow you everywhere you go silently recording your journey from 200 feet overhead? What expectations of privacy do we have from high-resolution flying camera in the national airspace? How does this new high-resolution geospatial and personal data impact privacy, free speech and the geospatial professional?....
