Amongst the multiple advantages and applications of remote sensing, one of the most important use is to solve the problem of crop classification, i.e., differentiating between various crop types. Satellite images are a reliable source for investigating the temporal changes in crop cultivated areas. In this work, we propose a novel Bat Algorithm (BA) based clustering approach for solving crop type classification problems using a multi-spectral satellite image. The proposed partitional clustering algorithm is used to extract information in the form of optimal cluster centers from training samples. The extracted cluster centers are then validated on test samples. A real-time multi-spectral satellite image and one benchmark dataset from the UCI repository are used to demonstrate robustness of the proposed algorithm. The performance of the Bat Algorithm is compared with the traditional K-means and two other nature-inspired metaheuristic techniques, namely, Genetic Algorithm and Particle Swarm Optimization. From the results obtained, we can conclude that BA can be successfully applied to solve crop type classification problems.
