Formatted Abstract/Summary
We describe an innovative methodology for block based multifocus image fusion in the spatial domain. The main idea is to use blind or no reference blur metrics for image fusion applications. Two blur quality metrics based on edge content information and radon wigner ville based mean directional entropy, developed in the paper are used as activity measures. Fusion is performed by calculating blur based activity measure for each sub window in the source images and using maximum selection criterion according to the magnitude of these metrics. Furthermore, the defined metrics can be used for quantitative performance assessment of multifiocus fused images. The results of the proposed algorithm are compared to some existing image fusion methods.
