DA-IMRN: Dual-Attention-Guided Interactive Multi-Scale Residual Network for Hyperspectral Image Classification Zou, Liang; Zhang, Zhifan; Du, Haijia; Lei, Meng; Xue, Yong; Wang, Z. Jane


Deep learning-based fusion of spectral-spatial information is increasingly dominant for hyperspectral image (HSI) classification. However, due to insufficient samples, current feature fusion methods often neglect joint interactions. In this paper, to further improve the classification accuracy, we propose a dual-attention-guided interactive multi-scale residual network (DA-IMRN) to explore the joint spectral-spatial information and assign pixel-wise labels for HSIs without information leakage. In DA-IMRN, two branches focusing on spatial and spectral information separately are employed for feature extraction. A bidirectional-attention mechanism is employed to guide the interactive feature learning between two branches and promote refined feature maps. In addition, we extract deep multi-scale features corresponding to multiple receptive fields from limited samples via a multi-scale spectral/spatial residual block, to improve classification performance. Experimental results on three benchmark datasets (i.e., Salinas Valley, Pavia University, and Indian Pines) support that attention-guided multi-scale feature learning can effectively explore the joint spectral-spatial information. The proposed method outperforms state-of-the-art methods with the overall accuracy of 91.26%, 93.33%, and 82.38%, and the average accuracy of 94.22%, 89.61%, and 80.35%, respectively.
