Hyperspectral unmixing approaches that account for spectral variability model endmembers (i.e., the pure spectral signatures in hyperspectral image) as a set or distribution. In this work, the semi-supervised Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation (PM-LDA) model is presented and applied to hyperspectral unmixing while accounting for spectral variability, using imprecise labels from map data, and leveraging spatial neighboring similarity. Experiments on both synthetic and real hyperspectral images demonstrate that the proposed model can better model the underlying endmember distributions in the datasets when compared to other hyperspectral unmixing models. Moreover, the proposed semi-supervised PMLDA approach performs well on datasets with high between-endmember similarity, a very challenging problem in this area.
