Extinction profile (EP) is an effective feature extraction method which can well preserve the geometrical characteristics of a hyperspectral image (HSI) and by extracting the EP from first three independent components (ICs) of an HSI, three correlated and complementary groups of EP features can be constructed. In this paper, an EPs fusion (EPs-F) strategy is proposed for HSI classification by exploring spatial-spectral information within and among three EP features. In general, the EPs-F method

In the first stage, within each EP feature, a superpixel-based composite kernel strategy is proposed to adaptively fuse the spatial information of EP and the spectral feature of HSI. Then, the obtained adaptive composite kernel is used to create a classification map for each EP. In the second stage, decision fusion is further applied on different classification maps to create the final classification result. Experiments on two real HSIs verify the effectiveness of the proposed EPs-F algorithm.
