Abstract:Sufficient training data must be acquired to classify areas of interest using a supervised classification method and hyperspectral data. However, the relatively small size of agricultural plots in Japan means that there is no training area large enough to represent a feature of interest. In this study, a new method for identifying crops using hyperspectral remotely sensed data has been proposed in order to resolve the problem of identifying training areas in agricultural crops. This method was then compared with conventional methods. The proposed method was found to be most effective for identifying crops using hyperspectral data in an agricultural land area.
