In this paper, we propose a novel hierarchical method for remote sensing image classification. The proposed approach integrates an explicit hierarchical graph-based classifier, which uses a quad-tree structure to model multiscale interactions, and a third order Markov mesh random field to deal with pixel wise contextual information in the same scale. The choice of a quad-tree and the third order Markov mesh allow taking benefit from their good analytical properties (especially causality) and consequently apply non-iterative algorithms. Indeed, the Markov mesh is used to incorporate spatial information in each scale of the quad-tree while keeping the causality of the hierarchical model.
