This paper introduces a novel approach for evaluating the quality of pansharpened multispectral (MS) imagery without resorting to reference originals. Hence, evaluations are feasible at the highest spatial resolution of the panchromatic (PAN) sensor. Wang and Bovik's image quality index (QI) provides a statistical similarity measurement between two(More)
This work presents a general and formal solution to the problem of fusion of a multi-spectral (MS) image with a higher-resolution panchromatic (P) observation. The method relies on the generalised Laplacian pyramid, which is an over-sampled structure obtained by subtracting from an image its low-pass version. The goal is to selectively performs(More)
This paper presents an image fusion method suitable for pan-sharpening of multispectral (MS) bands, based on nonseparable multi-resolution analysis (MRA). The low-resolution MS bands are resampled to the fine scale of the panchromatic (Pan) image and sharpened by injecting highpass directional details extracted from the high-resolution Pan image by means of(More)
In this paper, the effects of quantization noise feedback on the entropy of Laplacian pyramids are investigated. This technique makes it possible for the maximum absolute reconstruction error to be easily and strongly upper-bounded (near-lossless coding), and therefore, allows reversible compression. The entropy-minimizing optimum quantizer is obtained by(More)
