This paper presents an extended bilateral filter with spectral angles and a visualization scheme for hyperspectral image data. The conventional bilateral filter used to be implemented using a position vector and a luminance value at each pixel in the scene. Since hyperspectral image data can provide a spectrum vector that has hundreds of bands at each pixel, we propose an extended bilateral filter using spectral angles. The proposed bilateral filter can be used for extracting and preserving the spectrum edges of the hyperspectral image. A visualization scheme for hyperspectral images exploiting the proposed bilateral filter has been also proposed. When objects that have the similar tristimulus intensity but different spectrums are mixed, they can be separated through the proposed visualization scheme. The resulting images show that the proposed scheme facilitates anomaly detection in the hyperspectral scenes.
