Abstract. This paper examines a number of experimental investigations of neural networks used for the classification of remotely sensed satellite imagery at the Joint Research Centre over a period of five years, and attempts to draw some conclusions about 'best practice` techniques to optimize network training and overall classification performance. The paper examines best practice in such areas as: network architecture selection; use of optimization algorithms; scaling of input data; avoidance of chaos effects; use of enhanced feature sets; and use of hybrid classifier methods. It concludes that a vast body of accumulated experience is now available, and that neural networks can be used reliably and with much confidence for routine operational requirements in remote sensing.
