Hyperspectral imagery consists of a large number of spectral bands that is typically modeled in a high dimensional spectral space by exploitation algorithms. This high dimensional space usually causes no inherent problems with simple classification methods that use Euclidean distance or spectral angle for a metric of class separability. However, classification methods that use quadratic metrics of separability, such as Mahalanobis distance, in high dimensional space are often unstable, and often require dimension reduction methods to be effective. Methods that use supervised neural networks or manifold learning methods are often very slow to train. Implementations of Adaptive Resonance Theory, such as fuzzy ARTMAP and distributed ARTMAP have been successfully applied to single band imagery, multispectral imagery, and other various low dimensional data sets. They also appear to converge quickly during training. This effort investigates the behavior of ARTMAP methods on high dimensional hyperspectral imagery without resorting to dimension reduction. Realistic-sized scenes are used and the analysis is supported by ground truth knowledge of the scenes. ARTMAP methods are compared to a back-propagation neural network, as well as simpler Euclidean distance and spectral angle methods.
