Pansharpening notes, mid-2021
First posted in August 2021. Last corrections in January 2022. This is probably the final version, unless to fix massive errors or to link to a sequel: this is a warts-and-all report, not a living notebook.
This is a collection of notes on how I’ve been approaching convolutional neural networks for pansharpening. It’s an edited version of an e-mail to a friend who had asked about this tweet, so it’s informal and somewhat silly; it’s not as polished as, say, a blog post would be. It’s basically the advice I would give to an image processing hobbyist before they started working on pansharpening.
If you want a more serious introduction, start with the literature review in Learning deep multiresolution representations for pansharpening. Most of the academic work I would recommend is mentioned there.
