Hyperspectral image classification is one of the most popular information extraction methods in remote sensing applications. This method consists of variety of algorithms involving supervised, unsupervised or fuzzy classification, etc. In supervised classification, reference data which is known as a priori class information is used. On the other hand, computer based clustering algorithms are employed to group pixels which have similar spectral characteristics according to some statistical criteria in unsupervised classification.
