A comparison of land use land cover classification using superspectral WorldView-3 vs hyperspectral imagery

Abstract

In advance of releasing a WorldView-3 (WV-3) dataset with both VNIR and SWIR bands for research purposes, this study was conducted to provide a baseline comparison of land use/land cover (LULC) classification based on hyperspectral and 16-, 8-, and 4-bands of WV-3 imagery. We chose a well-researched area over the city center of Pavia, Italy. Results suggest that the addition of spectral information from WV-3's SWIR bands helps bridge the gap between precision/recall scores obtained with multispectral VNIR vs. hyperspectral VNIR imagery.
