Remote Sensing Classification for Zhalong Wetlands Based on Support Vector Machine

ZHANG Ce,ZANG Shu-Ying,JIN Zhu,ZHANG Yu-Hong(College of Geographical Sciences,Harbin Normal University,Harbin 150025,Heilongjiang,P.R.China)  
Wetlands are integral parts of the global ecosystem as they can prevent or reduce the severity of floods,feed ground water,and provide unique habitats for flora and fauna.Wetland remote sensing classification is one of the most important means to realize wetland dynamic monitoring,management and utilization.But spectral uncertainty or vagueness caused by spectral confusion between-class and spectral variation within-class remains a challenge to the wetland remote sensing classification.Exploring small sample size,high accuracy classification methods are hence necessary,due to the complex aquatic-terrestrial environments of wetlands,which are relatively difficult to acquire training samples by field survey.Traditional remote sensing classification methods usually require large training data sets,for instance,maximum likelihood classification,a widely used classical supervised classification method in remote sensing.The method of maximum likelihood classification assumes that the training statistics for each class have a normal distribution.Training of a maximum likelihood classification aims at a complete description of each class.To achieve this goal,the training set should be sufficiently large.Furthermore,the training data instances should be typical and representative of the classes in order to derive appropriate training statistics on which the classification can be based.It is hard to find such training samples in wetland remote sensing classification due to the wetland's complexity and ecological vulnerability.New approaches which need small training data sets and could deal with high feature dimensions remain to be investigated.In this paper,wetland remote sensing classification using support vector machine was explored by using Zhalong National Nature Reserve.The support vector machine is a new generation of supervised learning system that is based on the principle of statistical learning theory,which had gained wide acceptance in the remote sensing community for its solid statistical foundation and excellent empirical performance.One of the main advantages of support vector machine regarding remote sensing classification is that the approach only considers samples that are close to the class boundaries,the so-called support vectors.Using this,support vector machine works satisfactorily even with small training sets.Zhalong National Nature Reserve is a typical fresh water wetland area dominated by reed vegetation type.As an important breeding habitat of Red Crown crane(a rare wetland bird),Zhalong National Nature Reserve was firstly listed as the wetlands of international importance by the Ramsar Convention in 1987.The scientific management and protection of Zhalong National Nature Reserve has been highlighted by the government.Primary analysis was made with respect to the impact of sample size and feature dimensionality on the classification accuracy of the support vector machine,in comparison with classical maximum likelihood classifier.Training samples were partitioned into five sample sizes per class 20,40,60,80 and 100,based on stratified random sampling strategy.Each group of sample size combined with low and high dimensional features were used for wetland remote sensing classification respectively.The low dimensional features only include 11 feature bands while high dimensional features consist of 44 feature bands:11 feature bands and spectral,textural and terrain features.The wetland remote sensing classification based on support vector machine and maximum likelihood classifier had been explored using five kinds of sample size with low dimensional feature and high dimensional feature respectively.Our results showed that support vector machine performed better than maximum likelihood classifier in general.The classification accuracy tends to increase with the sample size grows larger.The highest classification accuracy(overall accuracy up to 88.125%) was obtained by support vector machine with 100 training samples per class plus high dimensional features.The total wetland area classified in Zhalong National Nature Reserve was 90 307.17 ha,including 8 301.15 ha water body,and 33 063.57 ha water covering marsh and 48 942.45 ha without water covering marsh.With high dimensional feature,support vector machine successfully solved the problem of'dimension disaster' and obtained an ideal classification result by combining spectral,textural and terrain features simultaneously.The support vector machine could still achieve good accuracies even the training sample size is as small as 20 or 40.Whereas maximum likelihood classifier classifier could not be trained with such small sample sizes at all,which indicate that maximum likelihood classifier classifier has a great constraint on sample sizes,especially for high dimensional features.Considering of its less constraints on training sample sizes and of its higher capability in dealing with dimensional features,the support vector machine is thus considered to be better suitable to wetland remote sensing classification,as training samples are hard to be acquired by field survey.That is,the support vector machine is an effective tool in wetland remote sensing classification.Meanwhile,we found 9 532.8 ha Saline-alkaline land in Zhalong National Nature Reserve.That means that the ecological environment of Zhalong National Nature Reserve is particularly vulnerable.Actions of scientific protection and management are required for these valuable wetland resources.
