Abstract : Pan sharpening is the process of fusion of panchromatic and multispectral image to obtain an output image of high spatial and spectral resolution. It is very important for various remote sensing applications such as image segmentation studies, image classification, temporal change detection etc. The present work demonstrates the application of Empirical Wavelet Transform for the fusion of panchromatic image and multispectral image by simple average fusion rule. The Proposed method is experimented on panchromatic and multispectral images captured by high resolution earth observation satellites such as GeoEye-1, QuickBird, WorldView-2 and World View-3. The effectiveness of our proposed method is evaluated by visual perception and quantitative assessment measures. The experimental analysis shows that the proposed method performs comparable to the existing fusion algorithms such as Multi-resolution Singular Value Decomposition and Discrete Wavelet Transform.
