Fusion of Multispectral and Panchromatic Image: a Review of Classical Approaches and New Developments MS49

Pansharpening refers to the fusion of a monochrome image acquired by a broadband panchromatic instrument with a fine spatial resolution, and a multispectral image with a high spectral resolution. In this paper, we will focus on the classical pansharpening and, in particular, on methods belonging to the component substitution and the multi-resolution analysis classes. The optimization of these two main families of pansharpening techniques will be addressed.
