Abstract:Recently deep learning-based methods have demonstrated excellent performance on different artificial-intelligence tasks. Even though, in the last years, several related works are found in the literature in the remote sensing field, a small percentage of them address the classification problem. These works propose schemes based on image patches to perform pixel-based image classification. Due to the typical remote sensing image size, the main drawback of these schemes is the time required by the window-sliding process implied in them. In this work, we propose a strategy to reduce the time spent on the classification of a new image through the use of superpixel segmentation. Several experiments using CNNs trained with different sizes of patches and superpixels have been performed on the ISPRS semantic labeling benchmark. Obtained results show that while the accuracy of the classification carried out by using superpixels is similar to the results generated by pixel-based approach, the expended time is dramatically decreased by means of reducing the number of elements to label.
