This article presents a new method for supervised image classification. Given a finite number of image sets, each set corresponding to a place of an environment, we propose a localization strategy, which relies upon supervised classification. For each place the corresponding landmark is actually a combination of features that have to be detected in the image set. Moreover, these features are extracted using a symbolic knowledge extraction theory, "formal concept analysis". This paper details the full landmark extraction process and its hierarchical organization. A real localization problem in a structured environment is processed as an illustration. This approach is compared with an optimized neural network based classification, and validated with experimental results. Further research to build up hybrid classifier is outlined on discussion.
