  Abstract A novel multiannual land-cover-classification scheme for classifying hypertemporal image data is suggested, which is based on a supervised decision fusion (DF) approach. This DF approach comprises two steps: First, separate support vector machines (SVMs) are trained for normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) time-series and mean annual temperature values of three consecutive years. In the second step, the information of the preliminary continuous SVM outputs, which represent posterior probabilities of the class assignments, is fused using a second-level SVM classifier. We tested the approach using the 10-day maximum-value NDVI composites from the “Mediterranean Extended Daily One-km Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer Data Set” (MEDOKADS). The approach increases the classification accuracy and robustness compared with another DF method (simple majority voting) and with a single SVM expert that is trained for the same multiannual periods. The results clearly demonstrate that DF is a reliable technique for large-area mapping using hypertemporal data sets.
