An image classification method based on Support Vector Machine (SVM) is proposed on hyperspectral and 3K DSM data. To obtain training data we applied an automatic method relating to four classes namely; building, grass, tree, and ground pixels. First, some initial segments regarding to building, tree, grass, and ground pixels are produced using different feature descriptors. The feature descriptors are generated using optical (hyperspectral) as well as range (3K DSM) images. The initial

Also, we created initial segment regarding to ground pixel after geodesic based filtering of DSM and elimination of the non-ground pixels. To improve classification accuracy, the hyperspectral image and 3K DSM were utilized simultaneously to perform image classification. For obtaining testing data, labelled pixels was divide into two parts: test and training. Experimental result shows a final classification accuracy of about 90% using Support Vector Machine. In the process of satellite image classification; provided by 3K camera. Both datasets correspond to Munich area in Germany.
