A smart system integrates appliances of sensing, acquisition, classification and managing with regard to interpreting and analyzing a situation to generate decisions depending on the available data in a predictive way. Remotely sensed images are an essential tool for evaluating and analyzing land cover dynamics, particularly for forest-cover change. The remote data gathered for this operation from different sensors are of high spatial resolution and thus suffer from high interclass and low intraclass vulnerability issues which retards classification accuracy. To address this problem, in this research analysis, a smart logistic fusion-based supervised multi-class classification (SLFSMC) model is proposed to obtain a thematic map of different land cover types and thereby performing smart actions. In the pre-processing stage of the proposed work, a pair of closing and opening morphological operations is employed to produce the fused image to exploit the contextual information of adjacent pixels. Thereafter quality assessment of the fused image is estimated on four fusion metrics. In the second phase, this fused image is taken as input to the proposed classifiers. Afterward, a multi-class classification model is designed based on the supervised learning concept to generate maps for analyzing and exporting decisions based on any critical climatic situation. In our paper, for estimating the performance of proposed SLFSMC among few conventional classification techniques such as the Naïve Bayes classifier, decision tree, Support vector machine, and K-nearest neighbors, a statistical tool called as Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) is involved. We have implemented proposed SLFSMC system on some of the regions of Victoria, a state of Australia, after the deforestation caused due to different reasons.
