NAME

r.fusion - image fusion, generalized pan-sharpening

KEYWORDS

raster, imagery, fusion, sharpen

SYNOPSIS

r.fusion
r.fusion --help
r.fusion [-r] input=name highres=name [method=string] output=name [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Flags:

-r
Restrict output value range to input value range
Recommended for imagery with a defined valid value range, e.g. [0, 255]
--overwrite
Allow output files to overwrite existing files
--help
Print usage summary
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output
--ui
Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters:

input=name [required]
Low-resolution raster to be enhanced
highres=name [required]
High-resolution raster with spatial detail
method=string
Solution method: Finite Diff. or Superpos. of analytical sol'ns
Options: difference, proportion
Default: difference
output=name [required]
Name for output raster map

DESCRIPTION

r.fusion enhances the resolution of a raster map by using spatial detail of a high-resolution map. The actual values in the resultant output map correspond to the input map while the spatial detail corresponds to the high-resolution map. The effect is similar to pan-sharpening, but the method can be applied more generally, not only to imagery but also to climatological data such as temperature or precipitation.

NOTES

Two different methods are available with the method option: difference and proportion.

The difference method uses the formula

A - B + B = A

more specifically

highres(Alowres - Blowres) + Bhighres = Ahighres

where highres() is a function to interpolate the differences. Here, r.resamp.filter is used for interpolation.

The proportion method is suitable for e.g. precipitation where zero precipition must stay zero precipition, and uses the formula

A / B * B = A

more specifically

highres(Alowres / Blowres) * Bhighres = Ahighres

Again, highres() is a function to interpolate the proportions, and r.resamp.filter is used for interpolation. For the proportion method, all values in the high-resolution B map must be > 0.
