A new sub-optimal search strategy suitable for feature selection in high-dimensional remote-sensing images (e.g. images acquired by hyperspectral sensors) is proposed. Such a strategy is based on a search for constrained local extremes in a discrete binary space. In particular, two different algorithms are presented that achieve a different trade-off between effectiveness of selected features and computational cost. The proposed algorithms are compared with the classical sequential forward selection (SFS) and sequential forward floating selection (SFFS) sub-optimal techniques: the first one is a simple but widely used technique; the second one is considered to be very effective for high-dimensional problems. Hyperspectral remote-sensing images acquired by the AVIRIS sensor are used for such comparisons. Experimental results point out the effectiveness of the presented algorithms.
