Polarimetric SAR obtains rich target scattering information by utilizing different polarizations to transmit and receive radar signals alternately, which has become an important tool for ground exploration. Presently, there are still some problems about the classification of PolSAR image because of the nonlinear data. Nonlinear features often lead the data difficult to distinguish in the conventional dimensions. Kernel method maps data to high-dimensional space, making the linearly inseparable data in the original dimension can be linearly separated in the high-dimensional space. Based on the study of the features of PolSAR data and signal sparse representation theory, this paper proposes a PolSAR image classification method based on kernel sparse representation, which optimizes the polarimetric and spatial information in PolSAR data, uses the kernel function method to solve the adverse effect of the nonlinear features on the classification results in the PolSAR image to obtain more accurate classification results. The experiment uses the fully polarimetric SAR data in San Francisco in the United States obtained by airborne AIRSAR, the advantages of kernel sparse representation in PolSAR image classification can be seen from the results.
