Image classification using kernels have very great importance in remote sensing data. The goal of this work is to efficiently classify the large set of aerial images into different classes. This paper introduces a kernel based classification for aerial images. It uses Grand Unified Regularized Least Square (GURLS) and library for support vector machines (LIBSVM). This paper compares the performance of different kernel methods used in GURLS and LIBSVM. The experiment is performed on three sets of aerial image data sets which are obtained from electrical engineering department of Banja Luka University under the DSP laboratory, funded by the WUSAUSTRIA project of the European Union. From the experiment performed, it can be deduced that GURLS library is better compared to LIBSVM in terms of its prediction accuracy. The advantage of GURLS library package over LIBSVM is its automatic parameter selection.
