Scene classification has been studied extensively in the recent past. Most of the state-of-the-art solutions assumed that scene classes are mutually exclusive. However, this is not true as a scene image may belongs to multiple classes and different people are tend to respond inconsistently even given a same scene image. In this paper, we propose a fuzzy qualitative approach to address this problem. That is, we first adopted the fuzzy quantity space to model the training data. Secondly, we present a novel weight function, w to train a fuzzy qualitative scene model in the fuzzy qualitative states. Finally, we introduce fuzzy qualitative partition to perform the scene classification. Empirical results using a standard dataset and a comparison with K-nearest neighbour has shown the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed method.
