The 2007 data fusion contest that was organized by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Data Fusion Technical Committee was dealing with the extraction of a land use/land cover maps in and around an urban area, exploiting multitemporal and multisource coarse-resolution data sets. In particular, synthetic aperture radar and optical data from satellite sensors were considered. Excellent indicators for mapping accuracy were obtained by the top teams. The best algorithm is based on a neural classification enhanced by preprocessing and postprocessing steps.
