                         Monte Carlo experience and Landsat data. Classification 
                         performance is hard to assess with generality due to the huge 
                         number of variables involved. In this case we consider the problem 
                         of classifying multispectral optical imagery with pointwise 
                         Gaussian Maximum Likelihood and contextual ICM (Iterated 
                         Conditional Modes), with and without errors in the training stage. 
                         Using simulation the ground truth is known and, therefore, precise 
                         comparisons are possible. The contextual approach proved being 
                         superior than the pointwise one, at the expense of requiring more 
                         computational resources, with both real and simulated data. 
                         Quantitative and qualitative results are discussed.",
