Dear list,
I want to do some unsupervised image classification of some landsat  
imagery, I think I can read in the multi-band rasters using rgdal, but  
has anyone tried doing this in R?  I am thinking (after looking at  
documentation for how GRASS and ArcGIS do it) that I need to do an  
initial hierarchical clustering to define clusters, but does anyone  
have an idea on how to do a maximum likelihood classification of the  
imagery?  Would a discriminant function approach work?  Any advice  
anyone may have would be greatly appreciated, and i'm very sorry but I  
don't have a working example yet.
