I use bands 654 for vegetation classification and bands 432 to prepare the map layout.

Is there a way to pan-sharpen the landsat 8 image using the bands 65432 ? So I swicth the GRB to classify and to Layout.

  • @Mikkel, Is there a way to make these process in the Arcgis 10.3 ? Dec 15, 2015 at 16:55

A three step process in QGIS:

  1. Stack the Landsat 8 multispectral bands that you require using "Build Virtual Raster".
  2. Use "Superimpose sensor" with the panchromatic band as 'reference' and the output from step 1 as 'the image to reproject'.
  3. Use "Pansharpening (Bayes)" with the panchromatic band as 'Input PAN Image' and the output from step 2 as 'Input XS Image'

All tools are indicated with " ", while input parameters are marked with ' '.
The tools can be found in the Advanced Interface in the Processing Toolbox.

  • @JoseAlfredo note that you may want to use another pansharpening tool than the lmvm-version. I just finished reviewing the different ones, and I have had the best results with "Pansharpening (Bayes)". Dec 15, 2015 at 13:07
