Hyperspectral imaging is a new technique in remote sensing that collects hundreds of images at differents wavelength values for the same area of the Earth. For instance the Airborne Visible Infra-Red Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) sensor of NASA capable to obtain 224 spectral channels in a wavelength range between 40 and 250 nanometers. As a result each pixel of the image can be represented as a spectral signature. Image segmentation is the process of dividing a digital image into groups of pixels or objects. Hyperspectral image classification is an important and active area dedicated to identifying each pixel in the image with an exclusive material/object class. Several efforts had been done in this field using spectral and spatial information separately or simultaneously in order to improve the performance of the classification techniques. In this work we have developed a new technique that uses a segmentation algorithm to post-process the classification results obtained using a widely used classifier such as the support vector machine (SVM). Experimental results with a real hyperspectral data set collected over the city of Pavia, Italy, are provided.
