Band Weighting via Maximizing Interclass Distance for Hyperspectral Image Classification
MetadataShow full item record
We present a novel band weighting strategy that exploits multiple binary support vector machines (SVMs) to maximize interclass spectral distances for multiclass hyperspectral remote image classification. Specifically, we commence by training binary SVMs based on the original training samples. We then balance the bands of training samples by maximizing the modified classification scores for SVMs. This balance scheme enlarges the distances between individual training samples and the SVM hyperplane. For each class, we reformulate the binary SVM objective function based on the balanced training samples, resulting in a weighting vector that associates a weight to each spectral band for the class. For a testing sample, we weight it and then classify it by using the binary SVM, both with respect to every individual class. The classification result is obtained from the classifier with the greatest score. Experiments on two benchmark data sets show the effectiveness of the proposed strategy.
