I have been tying to implement this paper on an SVM classifier wherein I need to extract training samples from an image and run an SVM classifier on it. The paper says the following:
IDRISI Andes was used for the preliminary processing such as identification of training samples. These data were then exported to MATLAB (version 7) for SVM classification.
However, I cannot figure out how to export the training sample data in a format readable by MATLAB (or even python, for that matter). The help page I found doesn't seem very useful.
(I also found this question which does not have any answers.)
