This paper presents a new method for supervised image classification. One or several landmarks are attached to each class, with the intention of characterizing it and discriminating it from the other classes. The different features, deduced from image primitives, and their relationships with the sets of images are structured and organized into a hierarchy thanks to an original method relying on a mathematical formalism called Galois (or Concept) Lattices. Such lattices allow us to select features as landmarks of specific classes. This paper details the feature selection process and illustrates this through a robotic example in a structured environment. The class of any image is the room from which the image is shot by the robot camera. In the discussion, we compare this approach with decision trees and we give some issues for future research.
