Paper Abstract

Image fusion is a very useful technique of obtaining high-resolution multi-spectral images from low spatial resolution multi-spectral and high-resolution panchromatic images. Nowadays many fusion techniques are available. However, those conventional fusion techniques existed also some shortcomings, which could not keep balance for preserving spectral information very well in a fused image with high-resolution spatial information. Hence, in this research a recent and efficient technique of fusion based on wavelet transformation was applied. The results presented the wavelet transform method is proved to be the best option for visual appreciation, preserving most 93% of the spectral information content, and as well improving the interpretability of low-resolution multi-spectral image classification. Meanwhile the results also further show the application potentiality of fusion technique based on wavelet transform for improving urban land classes in urban fringe.
