Optimization principles of accounting for the most informative spectral channels in hyperspectral remote sensing data processing serve to enhance the efficiency of the employed high-productive computers. The problem of pattern recognition of the remotely sensed land surface objects with the accent on the forests is outlined from the point of view of the spectral channels optimization on the processed hyperspectral images. The relevant computational procedures are tested using the images obtained by the produced in Russia hyperspectral camera that was installed on a gyro-stabilized platform to conduct the airborne flight campaigns. The Bayesian classifier is used for the pattern recognition of the forests with different tree species and age. The probabilistically optimal algorithm constructed on the basis of the maximum likelihood principle is described to minimize the probability of misclassification given by this classifier. The classification error is the major category to estimate the accuracy of the applied algorithm by the known holdout cross-validation method. Details of the related techniques are presented. Results are shown of selecting the spectral channels of the camera while processing the images having in mind radiometric distortions that diminish the classification accuracy. The spectral channels are selected of the obtained subclasses extracted from the proposed validation techniques and the confusion matrices are constructed that characterize the age composition of the classified pine species as well as the broad age-class recognition for the pine and birch species with the fully illuminated parts of their crowns.
