I am not a current subject matter expert in what you are looking for but as background I am a geologist with previous remote sensing training and practice so can offer some comments.  I will assume that you are looking for guidance on the image processing and supervised classification capabilities of ArcGIS and specifically, ArcGIS Pro.

The resources below may be helpful to you and I've asked some of my colleagues if there are any others that would be helpful.


There are a lot of resources on image processing in ArcGIS Pro that are publicly available on various Esri and other websites:-
