A Bayesian contextual classification scheme is presented in connection with modified M-estimates and a discrete Markov random field model. The spatial dependence of adjacent class labels is characterized based on local transition probabilities in order to use contextual information. Due to the computational load required to estimate class labels in the final stage of optimization and the need to acquire robust spectral attributes derived from the training samples, modified M-estimates are implemented to characterize the joint class-conditional distribution. The experimental results show that the suggested scheme outperforms conventional noncontextual classifiers as well as contextual classifiers which are based on least squares estimates or other spatial interaction models
