A multisensor digital data set of SPOT- XS and IRS1-C panchromatic data was used for the location of around Istanbul Airport in Turkey. These two data sets were digitally registered to each other and Maximum Likelihood classification method was utilised to get images. The classification algorithm was applied and merged (SPOT XS, IRS1-C) image separately. Combining high-resolution image data (i.e. IRS1-C) with multi-spectral image data (i.e. SPOT XS) and using colour transformation (i.e. MS) offers new image product in which distinct spectral patterns are revealed.
