Coarse resolution captured in remote sensing causes the combination of different materials in one pixel, called the mixed pixel. Spectral unmixing estimates the combination of endmembers in mixed pixels and their corresponding abundance maps in the Hyper/Multi spectral image. In this paper, a nonlinear spectral unmixing based on semi-supervised fuzzy clustering is proposed. First, pure pixels (endmembers) using Vertex Component Analysis (VCA) are extracted and those pixels are the labelled pixels where the membership value of each is 1 for the corresponding endmember and 0 for the others. Second, the semi-supervised fuzzy clustering is applied to find the membership matrix defining the fraction of the endmember in each mixed pixel and hence extract the abundance maps. The experiments were conducted on both synthetic data such as the Legendre data and real data such as Jasper Ridge data. The non-linearity of the Legendre data was performed by the Fan model on different signal-tonoise ratio values. The results of the new unmixing model show its significant performance when compared with four state-of the art unmixing algorithms
