ABSTRACT: A novel manifold learning feature extraction approach-preserving neighborhood discriminant embedding (PNDE) of hyperspectral image is proposed in this paper. The local geometrical and discriminant structure of the data manifold can be accurately characterized by within-class neighboring graph and between-class neighboring graph. Unlike manifold learning, such as LLE, Isomap and LE, which cannot deal with new test samples and images larger than 70×70, the method here can process full scene hyperspectral images. Experiments results on hyperspectral datasets and real-word datasets show that the proposed method can efficiently reduce the dimensionality while maintaining high classification accuracy. In addition, only a small amount of training samples are needed.
