Abstract. This paper presents an overview of uncertainty handling in remote sensing studies. It takes an image mining perspective and identifies ways different uncertainties. It starts with the pixel and through object identification and modeling proceeds towards monitoring and decision making. Methods presented originate both from probability and fuzzy logic based approaches.

Keywords: image mining, remote sensing, statistics
