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
