Paper Abstract

Hyperspectral imagery is used for a wide variety of applications, including target detection, tacking, agricultural monitoring and natural resources exploration. The main reason for using hyperspectral imagery is that these images reveal spectral information about the scene that are not available in a single band. Unfortunately, many factors such as sensor noise and atmospheric scattering degrade the spatial quality of these images. Recently, many algorithms are introduced in the literature to improve the resolution of hyperspectral images [7]. In this paper, we propose a new method to produce high resolution bands from low resolution bands that are strongly correlated to the corresponding high resolution panchromatic image. The proposed method is based on using the local correlation instead of using the global correlation to improve the estimated interpolation in order to construct the high resolution image. The utilization of local correlation significantly improved the resolution of high resolution images when compared to the corresponding results obtained using the traditional algorithms. The local correlation is implemented by using predefined small windows across the low resolution image. In addition, numerous experiments are conducted to investigate the effect of the chosen window size in the image quality. Experiments results obtained using real life hyperspectral imagery is presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
