Each pixel of the hyperspectral image is composed of hundreds of individual bands. Usually, these pixels are considered as high dimensional vectors. NWFE is a very robust and superior feature extraction method in this aspect of view of image pixel. On the other hand, since adjacent bands in a pixel are usually highly correlated, each pixel can also be viewed as a time series or signal. Therefore, the classification of hyperspectral data becomes the problem of distinguishing between different time series. As the consequence, time series discrimination methods, such as SLEX related time series methods, can then be applied in the classification of hyperspectral image. In this paper, a selection ensemble of NWFE and SLEX is proposed for classifying multi-group hyperspectral image. The performance of the proposed scheme is compared to SLEX and NWFE both by simulation data set and real hyperspectral image dataset, Washington DC Mall. These results show that the proposed scheme has higher testing data classification accuracy than others.
