In the methods of improving the classification precision of remote sensing images,adding textural information as an expanded eigenvector into feature space is a pretty useful method.In this paper,the author extract texture using spatial connections between geo-objects,then put it into the classification process.This experiment shows a nice result.Through the problems encountered in this experiment,we discussed the appropriate scope of this methodology.

Key words:  Semivariogram      Texture      Scale      Feature space      Classification precision
