This paper presents a practical supervised band selection procedure for airborne imaging spectrometers and Maximum Likelihood classification (MLC) as data application. The output band set is optimal in band location, width and number regarding the MLC accuracy of the classification task.
The supervised algorithm is based on feature selection and requires a user-defined class set. For two given semi-natural vegetation data and class sets, the selected band sets performed superior to established vegetation band sets used in current
satellite and airborne sensors, most noticeably for the first few bands. The algorithm was implemented in IDLTM/ENVITM. It may also be used for feature selection, the generation of classdiscriminate colour composites, the prioritization of already
existing band sets, and the determination of the intrinsic discriminant dimensionality of the data set.
