                         use of spectral signatures at the per-pixel level, while ignoring 
                         spatial features inherent in an image. The maximum likelihood 
                         classifier (MLC) may be the most common classification method in 
                         practice, but the object-based classification (OBC) method has 
                         been obtained increasingly attention due to its capability of 
                         incorporating spatial information in a classification procedure. 
                         This paper provides a comparison of MLC and OBC based on different 
                         datasets Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM), ALOS PALSAR L-band, and 
                         their combinations. Through comparative analysis of the 
                         classification results, we found that the OBC method cannot 
                         significantly improve overall land use/cover classification 
                         accuracy comparing with the maximum likelihood classification, but 
                         it indeed improve some vegetation classes having complex forest 
                         stand structure, and the OBC method is especially valuable for 
                         higher spatial resolution images. Also the OBC method has better 
                         performance than MLC when a combination of Landsat TM and PALSAR 
                         L-band data as extra bands is used.",
