In statistical image classification it is usually assumed that feature observations given labels are independently distributed. We have retracted this assumption by proposing stationary Gaussian random field (GRF) model for features observations. Conditional distribution of label of observation to be classified is assumed to be dependent on its spatial adjacency with training sample spatial framework. Perfomance of the Bayes discriminant function (BDF) and performance of plug-in BDF
are tested and are compared with ones ignoring spatial correlation among feature observations.For illustration image of figure corrupted by additive GRF is analyzed. Advantage of proposed BDF against competing ones is shown visually and numerically.
