Abstract
In this comparative study, the Bayesian and a neural network (the HLVQ) approach are used to classify multispectral LANDSAT images. The studied area contains several agricultural classes (wheat, flax,...). Some classes are found to be non homogeneous and thus are divided in this study into several subclasses. The Gaussian assumption needed by the Bayesian classifier is thus justified by this division. The main result obtained in this study is that the Bayesian classifier and the neural network considered here provide equivalent solutions for the classification of agricultural multispectral images.
