This study evaluates several methods that enhance the spatial resolution of multispectral images using a finer resolution panchromatic image. The resultant hybrid, high resolution, multispectral data set has increased visible interpretation and improved classification accuracy, while preserving the radiometry of the original multispectral images. These methods can therefore be applied to create simulated high resolution multispectral data, as well as to enhance image analysis.
