Remote Sensing (RS) Classification Procedures using the Environment for
Visualizing Images (ENVI) for Introduction to Geospatial Technologies for
Civil Engineering (CEGR 110) Course.
By Dr. Frederick K. Wilson, Morgan State University, Baltimore, MD, USA.
RS Software: EVNVI Classic
Launch ENVI Classic by going to “All Programs”
Click/Select “ENVI 5.0” and Click on “ENVI-32 bit” and double click on “ENVI Classic”.
The Main Menu of ENVI is launched.
Click on “File” and on the drop-down menu, select “Open Image File”

i. Click on the “RGB Color” Radio Button
ii. Click on the “R” Radio Button
iii. Select Bands 7, 4, & 2
iv. Click “Load RGB
2. Classifying the image:
i. Go to the ENVI Main Menu and select “Classification”.
ii. Click “Unsupervised” and go over to “IsoData” and double click on it.
iii. The “Classification Input File” window opens with the Landsat image
iv. Click on “Spectral Subset”
v. Select the Landsat bands assigned to you. To select more than 1 band, please click
on the first band, press the “Ctrl” key and then click on the rest of the bands that
were assigned to you. Click “OK” on the “File Spectral Subset” window and
again click “OK” on the “Classification Input File” window.
vi. The “ISODATA Parameters” window opens. Input the criteria assigned.
vii. Click on “Choose” on the “Enter Output Filename” section. Type the Output
name or navigate to the drive or folder and type the name of your file.
The classified image is saved and at the same time displayed in the “Available

the “Gray Scale” Radio button, click on “New Display”, and click on “Load
viii. The classified image (shown above), is color coded by the System. Such as Class
1 – Red, Class 2 – Green, Class 3 – Blue, Class 4 – Yellow, Class 5 – Cyan, Class
6 – Magenta, and Class 7 – Maroon. However, these colors (for each of the
Classes) can be changed using Real Color Composite image as a guide.
3. Changing the colors of the Classified Image to resemble the Real Color Composite
i. Link the two (2) displays – Display 1 and Display 2 by clicking on “Tools”,
selecting “Link Displays”.
ii. The “Link Displays” window opens. Select “Yes” on Display 1 and 2. Click on
iii. Now that the two Displays have been dynamically linked, the Classified Classes
can be determined by clicking on “Tools” on the classified image window and
selecting “Color Mapping”, and then clicking on “Class Color Mapping”.
iv. The “Class Color Mapping” window opens showing all the different classes
obtained during the Classification Process. In this Case it showed 7 Classes.
