Relative to the classification technique, the spectral unmixing (Keshava and Mustard in IEEE Trans Sig Process Mag 19:44–57, 2002) i.e., soft classification technique started late. Although the spectral resolution of the hyperspectral image has been improved greatly, the spatial resolution of the corresponding land object target of the pixel has been relatively low.
