Abstract
Nowadays, terrestrial dynamics study is more and more often performed with the help of satellite sensors. Usually, vegetation cover surveys are performed with wide field of view sensors, because of their high temporal resolution. However, a high spatial resolution will be appreciable to distinguish each component in a landscape. We propose to create merged images combining both sensors: our fusion method is based on both theories of pyramid algorithms and mathematical morphology. Let call HR (resp. BR) the spatial resolution of the high resolution (resp. coarse) sensor image, for example SPOT 4 HRVIR and VEGETATION. The principle is : 1) To decompose the high resolution image into a low-frequency and several high-frequencies images (HFI). 2) To perform the inverse transform on the HFI images and the coarse resolution sensor data and produce the merged image. Consequently, from a temporal set of VEGETATION data and from a few HRVIR scenes, we are able to create 20m (or less) resolution synthesis data having the temporal repetitivity of the VEGETATION data set.
