Hyperspectral imaging is becoming increasingly important in a variety of applications. These images contain a large number of contiguous bands to provide information at a fine spectral resolution and, therefore, cannot be displayed directly using an RGB color display. There has been some recent work on the problem of fusing hyperspectral images to three-band images for color display purposes. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of our recently proposed approach based on independent component analysis, correlation coefficient and mutual information (ICACCMI) to fuse the information from a large number of bands to three images suitable for color display. Depending on whether the reference images are available or not, several image quality metrics such as entropy and edge correlation have been proposed and employed to evaluate the fusion performance via three widely used hyperspectral image datasets.
