In this paper we would like to shed light the problem of efficiency and effectiveness of image classification in large datasets. As the amount of data to be processed and further classified has increased in the last years, there is a need for faster and more precise pattern recognition algorithms in order to perform online and offline training and(More)
Land cover classification has been paramount in the last years. Since the amount of information acquired by satellite on-board imaging systems has increased, there is a need for automatic tools that can tackle such problem. Despite the fact that one can find several works in the literature, we propose a novel methodology for land cover classification by(More)
It was introduced in this paper the Optimum-Path Forest for land use classification aiming a better environmental management, using images obtained from CBERS 2B CCD satellite covering the area of the Rio das Pedras watershed, Itatinga City, São Paulo State, Brazil. We also compared the Optimum-Path Forest algorithm with the well known supervised(More)
Sequential learning-based pattern classification aims at providing more accurate labeled maps by adding an extra step of classification using an augmented feature vector. In this paper, we evaluated the robustness of Optimum-Path Forest (OPF) classifier in the context of land-cover classification using both satellite and radar images, showing OPF can(More)
Unsupervised land-cover classification aims at learning intrinsic properties of spectral and spatial features for the task of area coverage in urban and rural areas. In this paper, we propose to model the problem of optimizing the well-known k-means algorithm by combining different variations of the Harmony Search technique using Genetic Programming (GP).(More)
Unsupervised land-use/cover classification is of great interest, since it becomes even more difficult to obtain high-quality labeled data. Still considered one of the most used clustering techniques, the well-known k-means plays an important role in the pattern recognition community. Its simple formulation and good results in a number of applications have(More)
Land use classification has been paramount in the last years, since we can identify illegal land use and also to monitor deforesting areas. Although one can find several research works in the literature that address this problem, we propose here the land use recognition by means of Optimum-Path Forest Clustering (OPF), which has never been applied to this(More)
In this paper we shed light over the problem of landslide automatic recognition using supervised classification, and we also introduced the OPF classifier in this context. We employed two images acquired from Geoeye-MS satellite at March-2010 in the northwest (high steep areas) and north sides (pipeline area) covering the area of Duque de Caxias city, Rio(More)
Contextual-based image classification attempts at considering spatial/temporal information during the learning process in order to make the classification process smarter. Sequential learning techniques are one of the most used ones to perform contextual classification, being based on a two-step classification process, in which the traditional noncontextual(More)
