Introducing an Unsupervised Method for feature Extraction of Hyperspectral Images Using Bands Clustering in the Prototype Space

Abstract:   (201 Views)
Hyperspectral sensors have high capability in identifying objects by acquiring a large number of adjacent electromagnetic bands. Although This large number of bands makes it possible to approximate the more precise spectral curve of the material, it also brings some challenges. The difficulty in data transfer, the weak performance of conventional statistical classifications due to the limited number of training data, and the high processing time are the most important ones. Hence, different methods of dimensionality reduction are proposed for hyperspectral images. In the following article, an unsupervised feature extraction method is proposed based on the bands clustering technique. In the proposed method, after the prior image clustering and forming the prototype space with the aid of the clusters’ averages, the bands are clustered using the K-medoids clustering algorithm. In each cluster, four types of central tendency measures, mean, geometric mean, harmonic mean, and median are used to extract the final features. The experiments are conducted on the three real hyperspectral images with medium and high spatial resolution. Final results indicate that the classification results of the proposed method can reach (72.12) which is 7% higher than the other four competitive methods, principal component analysis (PCA) (64.39), wavelet (64.58), feature selection method based on bands clustering based on variance (65.30) and non-parametric weighted features extraction (NWFE) (64.12) .
