Abstract The purpose of this paper is to investigate the applicability of fuzzy rule-based modeling to classify a LANDSAT TM scene from 1984 of an area located in the south of Germany. Both a land cover map with four different categories and an image depicting the degree of ambiguity of the classification for each pixel is the expected output. The fuzzy classification algorithm will use a rule system derived from a training set using simulated annealing as an optimization algorithm. The results are then validated and compared with a common classification method in order to judge the effectiveness of the proposed technique. It will also be shown that the proposed method with only nine rules for four different land cover classes performs slightly better than the maximum likelihood classifier (MLC). For error assessment, the traditional error matrix and fuzzy operators have been used.
