Paper Abstract

A contents correlation and Genetic Algorithm based remote sensing images fusion method is presented. Based on the imaging properties of Panchromatic images and multi-spectral images, contents correlation analysis concept is introduced. The fusion procedure is that Contourlet transform decomposition of Panchromatic and multi-spectral images, Analysis of redundancy and supplement relations of images contents, the construction of fusion method to redundancy components and supplement components, fusion algorithms optimization by using Genetic Algorithm. Finally, a fused image can be obtained with inverse Contourlet transform. Preliminary experiment results show that this method is better than ordinary wavelet transform based fusion method, IHS transform based fusion method and PCA transform based fusion method.
