Pansharpening multispectral remote sensing data by multiplicative joint nonnegative matrix factorization
Pansharpening aims at combining observable panchromatic and multispectral images to generate an unobservable image with the high spatial resolution of the former and the spectral diversity of the latter. In this paper a new fusion method is proposed. This method, related to linear spectral unmixing (LSU) techniques and based on non-negative matrix factorization (NMF), optimizes, by new iterative–multiplicative update rules, a joint criterion that exploits a spatial degradation model between the two images. The proposed Multiplicative Joint Non-negative Matrix Factorization (MJNMF) approach is applied to synthetic and real data, and its effectiveness in spatial and spectral domains is evaluated with commonly used performance criteria. Experimental results show that the proposed method yields good spectral and spatial fidelities of the pansharpened data. Also, it outperforms those tested from the literature.
