Decoding satellite images involves hundreds of automated methods. These methods are included in the modules of many well-known software tools for processing satellite images. To solve specific problems of identifying individual natural or man-made objects, there is a problem of choosing a method and means of data processing. The choice of methods depends on the scope of their application, different data are selected, for example, high-and low-resolution images, corresponding cartographic or other types of data.

To solve this problem, a structural and technological complex processing method is proposed. Since the initial processing of images is followed by thematic processing by industry, let's consider this method using the example of recognition of geological objects.
