Under "Remote Sensing" Virtual Lab, interactive exercises through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) are implemented. One can study the following topic:
“PanSharpening” is the process of merging a high-resolution panchromatic (PAN) satellite image and lower resolution multispectral (MS) satellite imagery to create a single high resolution color image. Google Maps for example uses this technique to increase image quality. In satellite imagery there are two types of images:
The objective of Pansharpening is to fuse the information of the PAN image with the information of the MS image to produce a high-resolution color image.
Using the developed GUI, you will be able to try several PanSharpening algorithms, including:
You will also be able to evaluate the PanSharpening results using a variety of metrics, including:
