We propose a novel scheme for designing fuzzy rule based classifiers. A self‐organizing feature map (SOFM) based method is used for generating a set of prototypes, which is used to generate a set of fuzzy rules. Each rule represents a region in the feature space that we call the context of the rule. The rules are tuned with respect to their context. We justified that the reasoning scheme may be different in different contexts leading to context sensitive inferencing. To realize context sensitive inferencing we used a softmin operator with a tuneable parameter. The proposed scheme is tested on several multispectral satellite image datasets and the performance is found to be much better than the results reported in the literature.
