Hi all,

The Beta version of my fusion tool for OpenEV is available here:


There is also a command-line version only requiring GDAL and Numeric:


Fusion, also known as pansharpening or pan merging is the sharpening of an enlarged RGB 
composite image using a higher resolution panchromatic greyscale image to obtain a sharper color 
image. The most common use is the fusion of Landsat panchromatic 15m band-8 with an RGB 30m 
bands 3,2,1. It is undetermined how this tool will perform on other types of imagery (ie SPOT, 
Ikonos, Quickbird) as I don't have access to any of those...
