One problem found when working with satellite images is the radiometric variations across the image and different images. Intending to improve remote sensing models for the classification of burnt areas, we set two objectives. The first is to understand the relationship between feature spaces and the predictive ability of the models, allowing us to explain the differences between learning and generalization when training and testing in different datasets. We find that training on datasets built…

Improving Land Cover Classification Using Genetic Programming for Feature Construction

It is shown that adding the M3GP hyperfeatures to the reference datasets brings better results than adding the well-known spectral indices NDVI, NDWI, and NBR, and is compared with other feature construction methods such as FFX and EFS.

Optical time series for the separation of land cover types with similar spectral signatures: cocoa agroforest and forest

This work focused on the separation of two cover types with similar spectral signatures, cocoa agroforest and forest, over an area in Pará, Brazil, and indicates that, out of seven classifiers, the popular random forest algorithm ranked fourth, while XGBoost (×GB) obtained the best results.

Comparative study of classifier performance using automatic feature construction by M3GP

The results show that automatic feature construction with M3GP, when compared to using the standalone classifiers without feature construction, achieves statistically significant improvements in the majority of the test cases, sometimes by a very large margin, while degrading the weighted f-measure in only one out of 48 cases.
