                         (MLP) were carried out using noisy soil science multispectral 
                         images, which were obtained using a Tomograph scanner. Using few 
                         units in the MLP hidden layer, images were classified using a 
                         single classifier. Later we used classifier combining techniques 
                         as Bagging, Decision Templates (DT) and Dempster-Shafer (DS), in 
                         order to improve the performance of the single classifiers and 
                         also stabilize the performance of the Multilayer Perceptron. The 
                         classification results were evaluated using Cross-Validation. The 
                         results showed stabilization of Multilayer Perceptron and improved 
                         results were achieved with fewer units in the MLP hidden layer.",
