General description

A paper about cloud detection [1], shows a fairly complex classification decision tree (figure 8 in the article), based on derived feature space resulting in 91% of correctly classified spectra.

The decision tree from [1][1]

The colours correspond to the colours from the article, apart from the colours for clear and shadow, which are made into natural (true) colour from red, green and blue bands.
