About the book
This book introduces the basic theories and applications of image fusion in various fields. Recent advancement of sensor technology accelerates the development of image fusion. The main purpose of fusing images is to aggregate information from various sources such that the fused image contains pertinent details from different images as compared to a single image from either source. The advantage of fusing images into a single image is invariably associated with data reduction while retaining important information.
This book will introduce this topic from explaining the current trend of image fusion, fundamental theories of applying image fusion, standard image fusion methods to the specific applications of image fusion in different fields especially the vast utility of image fusion in the field of medicine, remote sensing and satellite imaging. This book can serve as a basic reference book for undergraduate students as well as engineers and academic researchers that require the knowledge of image fusion algorithms.
