Title
Noise-resistant wavelet-based Bayesian fusion of multispectral and hyperspectral images
Author
Abstract
In this paper, a technique is presented for the fusion of multispectral (MS) and hyperspectral (HS) images to enhance the spatial resolution of the latter. The technique works in the wavelet domain and is based on a Bayesian estimation of the HS image, assuming a joint normal model for the images and an additive noise imaging model for the HS image. In the complete model, an operator is defined, describing the spatial degradation of the HS image. Since this operator is, in general, not exactly known and in order to alleviate the burden of solving the inverse operation (a deconvolution problem), an interpolation is performed a priori . Furthermore, the knowledge of the spatial degradation is restricted to an approximation based on the resolution difference between the images. The technique is compared to its counterpart in the image domain and validated for noisy conditions. Furthermore, its performance is compared to several state-of-the-art pansharpening techniques, in the case where the MS image becomes a panchromatic image, and to MS and HS image fusion techniques from the literature.
