Abstract : This paper investigates the use of recent visual features based on second-order statistics, as well as new pro- cessing techniques to improve the quality of features. More specifically, we present and evaluate Fisher Vectors (FV), Vec- tors of Locally Aggregated Descriptors (VLAD), and Vectors of Locally Aggregated Tensors (VLAT). These techniques are combined with several normalization techniques, such as power law normalization and orthogonalisation/whitening of descriptor spaces. Results on the UC Merced land use dataset shows the relevance of these new methods for land-use classification, as well as a significant improvement over Bag-of-Words.
