This comprehensive new resource presents recent developments in the classification of hyperspectral images using both spectral and spatial information, including advanced statistical approaches and methods. The inclusion of spatial information to traditional approaches for hyperspectral classification has been one of the most active and relevant innovative lines of research in remote sensing during recent years. This book gives insight into several important challenges when performing hyperspectral image classification related to the imbalance between high dimensionality and limited availability of training samples, or the presence of mixed pixels in the data. This book also shows the reader how to integrate spatial and spectral information in order to take advantage of the benefits that both sources of information provide.
