This paper presents a novel study of the classification of large-scale Mars McMurdo panorama image. Three dimensionality reduction techniques, based on fuzzy-rough sets, information gain ranking, and principal component analysis respectively, are each applied to this complicated image data set to support learning effective classifiers. The work allows the induction of low-dimensional feature subsets from feature patterns of a much higher dimensionality. To facilitate comparative investigations, two types of image classifier are employed here, namely multi-layer perceptrons and K-nearest neighbors. Experimental results demonstrate that feature selection helps to increase the classification efficiency by requiring considerably less features, while improving the classification accuracy by minimizing redundant and noisy features. This is of particular significance for on-board image classification in future Mars rover missions.
