As new remote sensing modalities emerge, it becomes increasingly important to nd more suitable algorithms for fusion and integration of dierent data types for the purposes of target/anomaly detection and classication. Typical techniques that deal with this problem are based on performing detection/classication/segmentation separately in chosen modalities, and then integrating the resulting outcomes into a more complete picture. In this paper we provide a broad analysis of a new approach, based on creating fused representations of the multi- modal data, which then can be subjected to analysis by means of the state-of-the-art classiers or detectors. In this scenario we shall consider the hyperspectral imagery combined with spatial information. Our approach involves machine learning techniques based on analysis of joint data-dependent graphs and their associated diusion kernels. Then, the signicant eigenvectors of the derived fused graph Laplace operator form the new representation, which provides integrated features from the heterogeneous input data. We compare these fused approaches with analysis of integrated outputs of spatial and spectral graph methods.
