I am trying to classify an image with SVM and RF in ArcMap. I have trained the classifiers and have the classifier definition files. I tried to classify but could not get RF and SVM from the drop-down menu for classification.

Can someone guide me how to classify with SVM and RF in ArcMap?

If you have created your .ecd (Esri Classifier Definition) file after training, there should not be any problem. Just run Classify Raster tool with your segmentation definitions (.ecd file) to get classified output.

If you are looking for an option for SVM in the Image Classification toolbar, however, the classification methods listed there serve to a slightly different purpose. The methods here are for multivariate analysis/classification. Please compare that with segmentation based classification methods.
