Paper Abstract

Ideally, one objective of image fusion in remote sensing is to obtain high-resolution multispectral images with simultaneously the spectral characteristic of multispectral images and an enhanced spatial resolution. To date, numerous image fusion techniques have been developed. However, many methods may introduce spectral distortion, appearing as a change in colors between compositions of resampled and fused multispectral bands. To tackle this problem, some methods have taken the radiometric characteristics of sensors into account. This paper is an attempt to fuse high-resolution panchromatic and low-resolution mutlitspectral bands of the EO-1 ALI sensor. Starting from the analysis of spectral difference between ALI and other sensors, the authors present two methods which take into account the physical spectrum response of sensors during the fusion process: one is an improved fast intensity-hue-saturation (IHS) method with spectral adjustment according to sensor spectral response, and the other directly introduces sensor spectral response into the general component substitution image fusion method. An experiment based on ALI images has been carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. The fused images processed through the proposed methods have almost the same spatial resolution as panchromatic images and keep good spectral characteristics.
