Effective classification of Chinese tea samples in hyperspectral imaging

Timothy Kelman, Jinchang Ren, Stephen Marshall

Abstract


Maximum likelihood and neural classifiers are two typical techniques in image classification. This paper investigates how to adapt these approaches to hyperspectral imaging for the classification of five kinds of Chinese tea samples, using visible light hyperspectral spectroscopy rather than near-infrared. After removal of unnecessary parts from each imaged tea sample using a morphological cropper, principal component analysis is employed for feature extraction. The two classifiers are then respectively applied for pixel-level classification, followed by modal-filter based post-processing for robustness. Although the samples look similar to the naked eye, promising results are reported and analysed in these comprehensive experiments. In addition, it is found that the neural classifier outperforms the maximum likelihood classifier in this context.
