Merging image data collected by different remote sensors is becoming an increasingly important component of digital processing. In this study, two data sets with very different characteristics were digitally merged, and a single data set, which contains information from both sets, was generated. Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) data were selected for their spectral information, and a digitized panchromatic photograph collected as part of the National High Altitude Program (NHAP), with approximately 4-m resolution after being digitized, was used for the primary spatial information. Five image control points and a second-order polynomial fit were used to combine the information from both data sets.-from Author
