## Abstract

The high dimensionalhyperspectral image classification is a challenging task due to the spectral feature vectors. The high correlation between these features and the noises greatly affects the classification performances. To overcome this, dimensionality reduction techniques are widely used. Traditional image processing applications recently propose numerous deep learning models. However, in hyperspectral image classification, the features of deep learning models are less explored. Thus, for efficient hyperspectral image classification, a depth-wise convolutional neural network is presented in this research work. To handle the dimensionality issue in the classification process, an optimized self-organized map model is employed using a water strider optimization algorithm. The network parameters of the self-organized map are optimized by the water strider optimization which reduces the dimensionality issues and enhances the classification performances. Standard datasets such as Indian Pines and the University of Pavia (UP) are considered for experimental analysis. Existing dimensionality reduction methods like Enhanced Hybrid-Graph Discriminant Learning (EHGDL), local geometric structure Fisher analysis (LGSFA), Discriminant Hyper-Laplacian projection (DHLP), Group-based tensor model (GBTM), and Lower rank tensor approximation (LRTA) methods are compared with proposed optimized SOM model. Results confirm the superior performance of the proposed model of 98.22% accuracy for the Indian pines dataset and 98.21% accuracy for the University of Pavia dataset over the existing maximum likelihood classifier, and Support vector machine (SVM).

## Keywords

Hyperspectral image contains rich spatial and spectral information. Analyzing information-rich hyperspectral images have prominent applications in various domains like mining, military, agriculture, etc. [1,2]. Reflectance spectrum of hyperspectral images can be used to detect the different viability of objects. However precise analysis of different spectrums through the naked eye is quite impossible. Thus, image processing algorithms are used to extract the essential features from the hyperspectral images. The fine spectral resolution of images is obtained through remote sensing sensors which utilize multiple adjacent narrow spectral bands to construct an HSI image [3]. Hyperspectral sensors generate wavelength bands in the visible and infrared spectra [4,5] and analyzing these spectral bands will provide target information in a better manner [6]. The HSI image pixels are composed of electromagnetic radiation bands [7] and hypercubes are used to represent the HSI in three dimensions. The spatial information is represented in the first two dimensions and the third dimension is used for representing the spectral information. The spatial information (x and y) and the spectral information (f) are represented as hypercube as x * y * f to represent all the data [8,9].

While the large spectrum dimensionality of HSI helps with pattern identification precision, the processing and analysis of such a large amount of data are hampered [10]. It is also frequent in Hyperspectral image analysis for numerous spectral bands to be correlated, which means that redundant information is being processed. Because of this, dimensionality reduction is a key stage in the processing of HSI [11]. A classifier’s performance can be severely affected if redundant data is not removed using dimensionality reduction. Thus, dimensionality reduction in HSI processing can reduce costs and irrelevant resource utilization while maintaining information quality [12]. Nonlinear and linear dimensional methods include Maximum Noise Fraction (MNF) method [13,14] for noise removal. While processing HSI spatially, recent supervised dimensionality reduction algorithms are focused on decreasing the data’s dimensionality. A dimensionality reduction can be achieved by utilizing local neighborhood information, such as Fisher’s LDA [15] and regularised model [16]. But the fundamental drawback of these approaches is the requirement for labeled data to reduce the dimensionality. For RS applications, unsupervised dimensionality reduction approaches have gained attention because of the lack of this information [17,18]. The lack of labeled examples is addressed by unsupervised dimensionality reduction methods, which aim to identify a different illustration of the data in a lower space. In this research study, initially, noises are removed using the DL technique, and then the pre-processed image is fed into SOM for dimensionality reduction. In the SOM, weight is updated by using the optimization model. The experiments are carried out on two publicly available datasets in terms of several metrics.

The remaining discussions are arranged in the following order. A brief literature analysis of existing research works is presented in Section 2. The proposed optimized dimensionality reduction model is presented in Section 3. Experimental results and discussion are presented in Section 4 and the conclusion is presented in Section 5.

Various dimensionality reduction methods are evolved in recent times which support Hyperspectral image classification applications. The dimensionality reduction model presented in [19] presents a shape adaptive tensor factorization model which extracts the patch features to develop fourth-order tensors. Similarly, the latent features are extracted in the presented approach using the mode i-tensor matrix. The dimensionality-reduced features are processed through sparse multinomial logistic regression to attain better classification performances. The dimensionality reduction model presented in [20] presents a graph-based spatial and spectral scaling cut procedure that incorporates both spectral and spatial domain features. The presented approach initially includes a guided filter to smoothen the pixels. Followed by smoothening, the local scaling cut procedure is employed to define the dissimilarities in features. A compressive dimensionality reduction procedure presented in [21] includes an optimized slice sparse coding tensor to reduce the high dimensionality of features. The dimensional reduced sparse features are classified using a tensor-based classifier to attain accurate classification performance with minimum computation cost.

An unsupervised method was presented in [22] for effective dimensionality reduction and classification of HSI images. The presented local neighborhood structure preserving embedding method reconstructs the samples based on neighbor spectral weights. The optimal weights are obtained from the reconstructed samples which are further used to develop adjacency graphs. The modification performed in the loss function greatly reduces the scatters and improves the classification performances compared to existing methodologies. The dimensionality reduction model for a Hyperspectral image incorporates a graph-based approach for effective dimensional reduction [23]. The presented multigraph embedding procedure initially captures the local and spatial information to develop a tensor subgraph. Then a bipartite graph is developed based on the relationship between the pixels and patch tensors. Finally, the deviations in the pixels are removed from the patch tensor and a pixel-based subgraph was developed to obtain the geometrical structures.

Researchers from Zhang et al. [24] developed an attention-based hierarchical homogeneity-based network to streamline computing by minimizing the number of comparable operations. According to CNN visual invariance, alterations to input images can have a significant impact on network performance. It has been proposed by Sabour et al. [25] to combine spectral–spatial feature extraction. Network robustness can be improved and more efficient position information can be preserved by using a capsule network (CapsNet), which was proposed in [26]. The DC-CapsNet has been introduced in 3D convolution by the author from [27] to improve the robustness of the learned spectral–spatial properties. CapsNet’s lack of labeled samples has recently been alleviated by GAN, which has shown satisfactory results. On the other hand, it has a difficult time modeling and preserving the relative locations of features [28]. The development of DL-based algorithms has also revealed several difficult problems. It has become increasingly challenging to deploy deep learning models on edge devices because of the increasing complexity of the model and the need for training samples and depths.

A general multimodal deep learning model is presented by Wu et al. [29] for remote sensory image classification. The presented fusion architecture performs pixel-wise classification considering the spatial information using a convolutional neural network. Experimentations provide better performance in remote sensory image classification compared to traditional approaches. A similar convolutional neural network-based remote sensing data classification model reported by Hong et al. [30] presents an advanced cross-channel reconstruction model using CNN. The presented approach provides compact fusion representations using reconstruction strategies and exchanges the information in an effective manner to obtain better classification performances. A semi-supervised 3D CNN (SS-3DCNN) was presented in a study [31] for the categorization of HSI. Using labeled and unlabelled training samples, this approach aims to overcome the problem of low training sample numbers and the “curse of dimensionality.” SS-3DCNN is utilized for HSI categorization once the specified bands have been input into them for processing. To classify HSI images, Zhang et al. [32] suggested a deformable convolution network for spectral–spatial attention fusion as SSAF-DCR. To advance the classification presentation of the HSI, the proposed model includes both feature classification networks. A 3D CNN is used to extract the HSIs’ spectral and low-level spatial properties, whereas a 2D CNN is used to recover the HSIs’ high-level spatial data. The SSAF-DCR strategy proved to be beneficial. For Hyperspectral image categorization, another study [33] presented a deep spectral-spatial inverted residuals network (DSSIRNet). To avoid the lack of labeled samples, DSSIRNet presented a data block random erasing technique. The DIR module for spectral bands is also projected in this paper. A 3D consideration module is also implemented and integrated into the DIR component.

Luo et al. [34] tried to remove the HSI mixed noise by spatial-spectral constrained deep image prior (S2DIP). Without any training data, the proposed model removed the noise by using hand-crafted priors. The DIP-based model’s semi-convergence behavior is avoided by the proposed model. An algorithm called the alternating direction multiplier model is used to enhance the denoising ability of the DIP model. Zeng et al. [35] removed the HSI mixed noise by proposing nonlocal block-term decomposition (NLBTD). Global spectral and non-local self-similarity features are captured by using BTD for preserving the smoothness of local spectra. Based on the proximal alternating minimization, the mixed noises in HSI are removed to increase the efficiency of NLBTD. Wang et al. [36] improved the strip removal and avoided the poor generalization ability by proposing Translution-SNet. The proposed model is used to remove the strip noise of HSI by applying the convolution and transformer as feature extraction. The loss function from noisy data is calculated by using an unbiased estimation method. During strip removal, various complex stripe noises are dealt with through semi-supervised methods to improve the Translution-SNet.

3.1 Noise Reduction Using the Proposed DL Model

In all individual matrices representing the input image, there are equivalent kernel matrices and biases. Finally, activation functions for all individual pieces have been developed. Behind the Back-Propagation (BP) phase, feature detection filters are constructed by altering bias and weight values. A feature map filter is applied to each of the three channels to minimize the amount of noise in the images that are being processed. Using a technique called “pooling layers,” CNN reduces the amount of data it needs to work with to reduce the amount of noise it has to deal with in its final output. To protect the crucial features, the usual pooling methods are used. The max-pooling method is one of the most well-known methods of pooling, and it involves selecting the largest activation in the pooling window. Using sigmoid (Eq. (1)) or ReLU (rectified linear activation unit) (Eq. (2)) activation functions, CNN has applied a BP approach to perform a discriminative function. According to Eq. (3), the final layer has one node that has a beginning function for binary classification and another node that has an activation function for multi-class issues [37].

For image categorization, the DWS convolutions were used. It is a type of factorized convolutional that breaks down depth-wise convolutions. With only one filter per input channel, the depth-wise convolutional filtering (Fig. 1) performs lightweight filtering. Next, the input channels are combined in a linear fashion using a point-wise convolution [30]. Standard convolutional functions are returned by using DWS convolution, which returns a factorized 2-layer convolution and a single layer to space filter. It is therefore possible to reduce computation/noises of the input images and mode size by using depth-wise separable convolutional. The standard convolution layer receives a feature map of

All of the separable convolutional parts can be separated. It uses depth-wise convolutional filtering to apply a single filter to all input feature maps, which is given in Eq. (4).

The cost of depth-wise convolution and 1 × 1 point-wise convolution is shown below. A DWS convolutional is related to the normal convolutional in that it reduces the calculation difficulty by a factor as shown in (7).

The factor is roughly comparable to

3.2 Dimensionality Reduction Using Proposed Optimized SOM

An approach based on maps to reduce the size of an HSI is presented in this section. As a first step, the image is reduced to a lower dimension using the dimensional reduction approach projected in this study and based on optimized SOM. The use of optimized SOM is to reduce the spatial dimensions of hyperspectral image (HSI). SOMs are inspired by the human brain’s ability to focus on the most important aspects of the universe. Using self-organized maps, high-dimensional data in HSI can be grouped. This type of network has only one input and one output layer, and there are no hidden layers. Relationships within the input patterns are automatically discovered by the SOM network. To solve the difficulty of mapping images from higher to two-D feature space for image cataloging, this property can be employed. A SOM network is defined by the neurons in the input and output layers. Each feature has the same amount of input neurons. The output layer of a SOM is typically a two-dimensional layer with

The proposed model experimental analysis includes two datasets as Indian Pines dataset and the University of Pavia dataset. The Airborne Visible and Infrared (AVIRIS) sensor captured the Indian Pines (IP) dataset, which was the starting point for this research work. Each class has a 145 × 145-pixel spatial resolution and 220 spectral bandwidths. It is further characterized by the removal of 104–108, 150–163, and 220. The spectral wavelength is between 0.4 and 2.5 micrometers. 10% of the samples from each class were used in the training, while the rest were used for testing. Table 2 lists the total number of training and testing samples for each class. As a second source, we turned to Italy’s University of Pavia dataset (UP), which was gathered using the ROSIS imaging spectrometer. It measures 610 × 340 pixels in width and height. After removing the noisy bands, it has 103 spectral bands, each with 200 training samples; the remaining samples were used for testing purposes. For each class, the numbers in Table 2 reflect how many training and testing samples were used.

4.1 Performance Validation of the Proposed Model

We have utilized an Intel Xeon W-2123 CPU with 64 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti GPU with 11 GB of RAM in the experimental configuration. The Pytorch 1.6.0 DL frameworks are used in conjunction with a 64-bit Windows 10 OS. In terms of overall accuracy (OA), average accuracy (AA), and Kappa coefficients, classification accuracy is measured.

Further to validate the performance of the proposed model, different dimensionality reduction techniques are compared with the existing methods like Enhanced Hybrid-Graph Discriminant Learning (EHGDL), local geometric structure Fisher analysis (LGSFA), Discriminant hyper-Laplacian projection (DHLP), Group-based tensor model (GBTM), and Lower rank tensor approximation (LRTA) methods. The results are obtained from Luo et al. [40] and An et al. [41] research works that perform dimensionality reduction in Hyperspectral images. The dataset which was used in the proposed work was used in the existing methods so that the results are directly compared with the proposed model results given in Table 3. The ablation study results on the Indian Pines dataset and the University of Pavia dataset are given in Table 4, which describes the overall accuracy, average accuracy and Kappa coefficient of the proposed model. The following data given in Table 5 presents the comparative analysis of the proposed model and existing model performances for the Indian pine dataset. From the results, it can be observed that the performance of the proposed model is much better than the existing methods in terms of overall accuracy, average accuracy, and kappa coefficient.

Similarly, the performance of the proposed model is compared with existing methods for the University of Pavia dataset. Table 6 depicts the performance comparative analysis and it can be observed from the results that the performance of the proposed model is much better than the existing methods.

Further to validate the impacts of dimensionality in the overall accuracy metric, different dimensional measures are employed and measured the overall accuracy for the proposed model. Fig. 2 depicts the performance comparative analysis of the proposed model and existing models for different dimension rates. The dimensionality is varied from the minimum on a scale of ten and measured for the maximum value of 100. Fig. 2 depicts the variations in the overall accuracy of the proposed and existing methods for the Indian Pines dataset. Similarly, Fig. 3 depicts the variations in the overall accuracy of the proposed method and existing methods for the University of Pavia dataset. Due to the maximum dimensional reduction without any feature loss proposed model attains maximum accuracy compared to other methods for both datasets.

To validate the classifier performance, the proposed dimensionality reduction method and existing methods are comparatively analyzed and the performances are presented in Table 7.

The existing methods like DHLP, LGSFA, and EHGDL incorporate a maximum likelihood classifier, and the LRTA and GBTM methods incorporate an SVM as a classifier. The proposed model includes depth wise CNN model for final classification. The initial dimensionality reduction is performed through optimized SOM. The major issue in handling hyperspectral images is its dimensionality and the presented approach effectively reduces the dimensions and selects the optimal feature which improves the classification accuracy compared to existing methods. The computation complexity of the proposed model is slightly higher than the existing methods due to multiple algorithms. However, it can be neglected as the results of the proposed dimensionality reduction method and classifier performances in hyperspectral image classification are observed as better compared to existing methods.

In this research work, the proposed depth-wise CNN model is used as a pre-processing technique to remove the general noises in the used datasets. The pre-processed image is then fed into the optimized SOM for solving the dimensionality reduction problem. The weight in the SOM is optimized by using WSOA, which is briefly explained in Section 3. The experiments are conducted on IP and UP datasets. The suggested model obtained 98% of AA and Kappa, whereas the previous models achieved 91% to 95% of AA and Kappa on the IP dataset. However, because of the huge number of parameters and the little quantity of training data required to train the model, deep neural network models such as CNN are prone to overfitting. Overfitting difficulties will be addressed in future studies by employing effective deep-learning approaches considering spatial resolution and spectral bandwidth.
