A new scheme is proposed for fusing multisensor images in which one image is regarded as the main image and the other the complementary, based on the evaluation of certain characteristics in the images. In effect, the scheme is used to fuse an image pair in which one image is superior to the other for interpretation in terms of higher resolution, better image quality, or having more recognizable features. Feature information is based on local statistical characteristics, which are extracted using the analysis of variance (ANOVA) method [21], in the framework of experimental designs. In effect, feature information from one image is used to influence the corresponding pixel values of the other image. The fused image leads to a better human and/or machine interpretation of the area of interest in the images.
