Hyperspectral imaging systems are assuming a greater importance for a wide variety of commercial and military systems. The reason for this increased interest is the fact that a hyperspectral sensor of a give4n spatial resolution or pixel sized will reveal information on the scene that are not obtainable by single band or multi-spectral sensors. There have been several approaches to using a single higher spatial resolution band to improve the spatial resolution fo the hyperspectral data. In this paper, a new technique for improving the spatial resolution of hyperspectral image data will be presented. This technique, called Joint End-member Determination and Unmixing, combines a high-resolution image with a lower spatial resolution hyperspectral image to produce a product that has the spectral properties of the hyperspectral image at a spatial resolution approaching that of the panchromatic image. Instead of using statistical methods to sharpen hyperspectral imagery, a physical model is used where the data present in both the hyperspectral and high-resolution data are assumed to follow linear mixing model. In this paper, the new mixture model based resolution enhancement approach will be compared to the statistical approach using data from NASA/JPL AVIRIS hyperspectral sensor.
