In this letter, we present a novel object-oriented semantic clustering algorithm for high-spatial-resolution remote sensing images using the probabilistic latent semantic analysis (PLSA) model coupled with neighborhood spatial information. First of all, an image collection is generated by partitioning a large satellite image into densely overlapped subimages. Then, the PLSA model is employed to model the image collection. Specifically, the image collection is partitioned into two subsets. One is used to learn topic models, where the number of topics is determined using a minimum description length criterion. The other is folded in using the learned topic models. Therefore, every pixel in each subimage has been allocated a topic label. At last, the cluster label of every pixel in the large satellite image is derived from the topic labels of multiple subimages which cover the pixel in the image collection. Experimental results over a QUICKBIRD image show that the clusters of the proposed algorithm are better than K-means and Iterative Self-Organizing Data Analysis Technique Algorithm in terms of object-oriented property.
