	%X Interpretation of aerial images is an important task in
various applications. Image segmentation can be viewed as the essential
step for extracting information from aerial images. Among many
developed segmentation methods, the technique of clustering has been
extensively investigated and used. However, determining the number
of clusters in an image is inherently a difficult problem, especially
when a priori information on the aerial image is unavailable. This
study proposes a support vector machine approach for clustering
aerial images. Three cluster validity indices, distance-based index,
Davies-Bouldin index, and Xie-Beni index, are utilized as quantitative
measures of the quality of clustering results. Comparisons on the
effectiveness of these indices and various parameters settings on the
proposed methods are conducted. Experimental results are provided
to illustrate the feasibility of the proposed approach.
