Abstract
    This paper studies the potential of airborne hyperspectral imagery for classifying vegetation along the Belgian coastlines. Here, the aim is to build vegetation maps using automatic classification. Besides a general linear multiclass classifier (Linear Discriminant Analysis), several strategies for combining binary classifiers are proposed: one based on a hierarchical decision tree, one based on the Hamming distance between the codewords obtained by binary classifiers and one based on the coupling of posterior probabilities. In addition, a new procedure is proposed for spatial classification smoothing. This procedure takes into account spatial information by letting the decision for classification of a pixel depend on the classification probabilities of neighboring pixels. This is shown to render smoother classification images.
