Multiple kernel representation and classification of multivariate satellite-image time-series for crop mapping



Multiple kernel representation and classification of multivariate satellite-image time-series for crop mapping



International Journal of Remote Sensing 39(1): 149-168



Multivariate satellite-image time-series (MSITS) are a valuable source of information for a wide range of agricultural applications. Image classification, one of the main applications of this type of data, is a challenging task. It is mainly because MSITS are generated by a complex interaction among several sources of information, which are known as the factors of variation. These factors contain different information with different levels of relevance to a classification task. Thus, a proper representation of MSITS data is required in order to extract and model the most useful information from these factors for classification purpose. To this end, this article proposes three multiple kernel representations of MSITS data. These representations extract the most classification-related information from these data through combining the basis kernels constructed from different factors of variation of the MSITS data. In the proposed representations, the combination of the basis kernels was achieved by using the multiple kernel learning algorithms. The efficiency of the proposed multiple kernel representations was evaluated based both on analysing the relevance of their kernels to the classification task and their classification performances. Two different MSITS data sets composed of 10 RapidEye imageries of an agricultural area were used to evaluate the performances of the proposed methods. In addition, the classification results of both MSITS using a single kernel were considered as the baseline for comparison. The results showed an increase of up to 14% in overall accuracy of the classification maps by using the multiple kernel representations. Moreover, these particular representations for classification of time-series observations were able to handle the undesirable effects in image data such as the presence of clouds and their shadows.
