The near-infrared (NIR) spectral range (from 780 to 2500 nm) of the multispectral remote sensing imagery provides vital information for landcover classification, especially concerning vegetation assessment. Despite the usefulness of NIR, it does not always accomplish common RGB. Modern achievements in image processing via deep neural networks make it possible to generate artificial spectral information, for example, to solve the image colorization problem. In this research, we aim to…

Visualizing Near Infrared Hyperspectral Images with Generative Adversarial Networks
An end-to-end neural network is proposed, based on the convolutional neural networks, to transform a hyperspectral image of hundreds of near infrared bands to a three-band image, which shows that the proposed method performs better in producing naturally looking details and colors for near infrared hyperspectrals.
