In this paper, a novel classification processing based on the spatial information and the concept of Adaboost for hyperspectral image classification is proposed. This classification process is named as adaptive feature extraction with spatial information (AdaFESI). The main idea is adaptive in the sense that subsequent feature spaces are tweaked in favor of those instances misclassified by spectral or spatial classifiers in the previous feature space. All training samples are projected into these feature spaces to train various classifiers and then constitute a multiple classifier system. The experimental results based on two hyperspectral data sets show that the proposed algorithm can generate better classification results.
