Swarm Intelligence Approach to Wavelet Design for Hyperspectral Image Classification


Wavelets are known to be a valuable tool for analyzing hyperspectral images. In this letter, we propose to further improve their performance by means of a novel classificationdriven design scheme that aims at deriving a wavelet that best represents in terms of between-class discrimination capability the spectral signatures conveyed by a given hyperspectral image. This is achieved by adopting a polyphase representation of the wavelet filter bank and formulating the wavelet optimization problem within a particle-swarm-optimization (PSO) framework. Experimental results show that the proposed wavelet design method outperforms the popular Daubechies wavelets whatever the classifier type adopted in the classification process.
