  35. 35. Conclusions<br />Airborne hyperspectral imagery incorporated with image transformation and classification techniques can be a useful tool for mapping giant reed.<br />MTMF performed better than LSU for differentiating giant reed from associated cover types. <br />SVM produced the best classification results among the three classifiers examined. <br />Further research is needed to automate the identification of endmembers for speeding up the image classification process.<br />21<br />
