Abstract

In hyperspectral imaging, shadowy areas present a major problem as targets in shadow show decreased or no spectral signatures. One way to mitigate this problem is by the fusion of hyperspectral data with LiDAR data; since LiDAR data presents excellent information by providing elevation information, which can then be used to identify the regions of shadow. Although there is a lot of work to detect the shadowy areas, many are restricted to distinct platforms like ARGCIS, ENVI etc.
