Abstract : This report addresses the problem of burnt area discrimination using remote sensing images. The detection is based on a single post-fire image acquired by SPOT 5 satellite. To delineate the burnt areas, we use a recent classification method called Support Vectors Machines (SVM). This approach is compared to more conventional classifiers such as K-means or K-nearest neighbours which are widely used in image processing. We also proposed a new automatic classification approach combining K-means and SVM. The results given by the different methods are finally compared to ground truths on various burnt areas.
