The comparison of different approaches to classification of multichannel remote sensing images obtained by spaceborne imaging systems is presented. It is demonstrated that it is reasonable to compress original noisy images with appropriate compression ratio and then to classify the decompressed images rather than original data. Two classifiers are considered: based on radial basis function neural network and support vector machine. The latter one produces slightly better classification results.
