Nonlinear manifold learning algorithms assume that the original high dimensional data actually lie on a low dimensional manifold defined by local geometric distances between samples. Most of the traditional methods have focused only on the spectral distances in calculating the local dissimilarity of samples, whereas in the case of image data, the spatial distribution and localized contextual information of image samples could provide useful information. As a framework for integrating spatial

The new approach, which develops the manifold for the purpose of classification, incorporates an updating scheme whereby the spatial information and class labels are transferred through the segmentation hierarchy. It is applied to hyperspectral data collected by the Hyperion sensor on the EO-1 satellite over the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Classification accuracies and generalization capability are compared to those achieved by the best basis binary hierarchical classifier, the hierarchical support vector machine classifier, and the shortest path k-nearest neighbor classifier.
