Paper Abstract

Taking advantage of both optical and microwave remote sensing images with their complementary information, image fusion becomes a valuable approach to provide and improve up-to-date space maps in frequently cloud covered areas such as the humid Tropics. Remotely sensed data from north of the Netherlands is processed for test and calibration purposes. Later on it is planned to implement the methodology in Indonesia; the selected research area is situated on Sumatra. This paper gives an overview about the existing techniques and presents first results of fusing ERS- 1 SAR data with SPOT and LANDSAT TM investigating different combinations of fusion techniques and input imagery in terms of orbit, looking angle and spectral/spatial resolution. It is anticipated to provide an optimized fusion approach which takes into account the parameters which influence the accuracy and information extraction possibilities of fused data in relation to mapping and map updating in tropical developing countries.
