The upcoming launch of the next generation of hyperspectral satellites (PRISMA, EnMap, HyspIRI, etc.) will meet the increasing demand for the availability/accessibility of hyperspectral information on agricultural land use from the agriculture community. To this purpose, algorithms for the classification of remotely sensed images are here considered for agricultural monitoring of cultivated area, exploiting remotely sensed high spectral resolution images. Classification is accomplished by procedures based on discriminant analysis tools that well suit hyperspectrality, circumventing what in statistics is called “the curse of dimensionality”. As a byproduct of classification, a full assessment of the spectral bands of the sensor is obtained, ranking them with the purpose of understanding their role in segmentation and classification. The methodology has been validated on two independent image datasets gathered by the …
