The wavelet transform provides information both in the spatial domain and in the frequency domain because of its inherent nature of space-frequency analysis. This paper presents a classification result of synthetic aperture radar image obtained by JERS-1 based on the discrete wavelet transform. This paper points out that the wavelet analysis has yielded a fine result in texture classification compared to a conventional method with less computation time.
