Image classification is a field with many viable methods towards solving problems within it. It is therefore important to analyse and determine whether there exists a best machine learning technique which can be applied when categorising images. This report analyses nine approaches: K-nearest Neighbours; Support Vector Machine; Random Forest; Logistic Regression; Gaussian Naive Bayes; Multinomial Naive Bayes; Complement Naive Bayes; LightGBM; and a Convolutional Neural Network to determine if one of these approaches is ideal in classifying images of the surface of Mars.
