HighView is an advanced image fusion and pan-sharpening software program. It successfully merges low-resolution multispectral bands with high-resolution panchromatic band of recent satellite images (for instance, Digital Globe s QuickBird, Space Imaging s IKONOS, and Landsat 7 ETM+). HighView can be widely applied in a variety of image application fields, such as defense intelligence, urban planning, 3D visualization, environmental impact assessment, and land cover/use changes.
A comprehensive image fusion workflow is adopted in HighView including three steps--band combination, pan-sharpening, and assessment. HighView is compact and easy-to-use. With its full set of spectral and spatial optimization and enhancement options, users now have more flexibility and control in producing ideal image fusion and pan-sharpening results best suited to their needs and taste. Not only geospatial analysts but also novice users will find HighView an essential tool for exploring image intelligence.
