Paper Abstract

Spatial data sharpening techniques that fuse images and maps are described. The statistical basis of these techniques are reviewed and extended for sharpening other kinds of spatial data that can be difficult to collect in denied areas. One example is demographic data. We demonstrate the ability to derive high-resolution population maps from county or district census data and Landsat imagery that is accurate to within 5% of the true population within a test area.
