Image classification has become a hot topic in the field of remote sensing. In general, the complex characteristics of multispectral data make the accurate classification of such data challenging for traditional machine learning methods. In addition, multispectral imaging often deals with an inherently nonlinear relation between the captured spectral information and the corresponding materials. In this paper, we propose a novel classification method for multispectral imagery, named as support vector machine (SVM). Pixel multispectral imagery can be represented by amplitude, phase and residual in frequency. Its applicability and effects are assessed by the experiment using data set, in which CNN, and KNN based feature extraction methods are adopted for comparison, aiming to evaluate the performance of the proposed method. Experimental results illustrate that the proposed model gains the highest classification accuracy. Comparison of various performance parameters showed that KNN works better than SVM.
