  • Assessing Limits of Classification Accuracy Attainable through Maximum Likelihood Method in Remote Sensing

    Abstract: The signal reaching the satellite is mix-up of contributions from varied features on the ground surface besides atmospheric errors. Getting back the information on ground features from satellite-based data is an ill-defined inverse problem and is solved by applying statistics-based maximum likelihood (ML) type constraints. Here, the limits of classification accuracy attainable, using ...
