I use Maximum Likelihood classification to classify Landsat image into two landuse classes - one of my interest and rest including all others. Inorder to assess the accuracy I export it in vector format using with feature type as area. But I find no option to export it in such a way that I can differentiate between two classes. Is there any way to do that?

Would it be an option to use r.reclass to assign for example 1 to areas of interest and 0 to others. Then use with the -v flag.

Doing that, you should have a new vector layer with an attribute containing the values. You then use v.colors to specify the desired color for a given value attribute.

See the exemple at the bottom of the given page to understand how the rules mechanism works.
