Unsupervised learning
Using the same machine learning framework, it is also possible to perform
unsupervised classification. In this case, the main difference is that
the training samples don't need a real class label. However, in order to use
the same *TrainImagesClassifier* application, you still need to
provide a vector data file with a label field. This vector file will be
used to extract samples for the training. Each label value is can be considered
as a source area for samples, the same logic as in supervised learning is
applied for the computation of extracted samples per area. Hence, for
unsupervised classification :
- if there is a unique label in the vector data, samples will be selected as if
they come from a single class or set
- if multiple labels are present, samples will be selected so that every
samples in the smallest class are selected, and the same number of sample from
each class
