Great to have you on board !

I'm very interested in working this summer for a project I have seen
on the GSOC 2018 idea page regarding the development of image fusion
An already existing fusion algorithm is the High-Pass Filter Addition
implemented in the i.fusion.hpf module . The scope of the project
to expand the capabilities of GRASS to combine data from different sensors.
As note to other developers: Tudor has already sent me off-list a patch
to i.in.spotvgt to respond to bug #3186 . I still have to test it
before applying, but if anyone else is interested, contact me.
The first algorithm I would implement is based on Nicolas Brodu's paper
Super-resolving multiresolution images with band-independant geometry of
multispectral pixels . The algorithm presented in this paper would
the resolution of certain low resolution bands by inferring some geometric
characteristics from high resolution bands. As opposed to the already
HPFA fusion method, this one does not require a panchromatic band making it
suitable for satellites that do not produce panchromatic bands.
I'm sure some other fusion algorithms are needed in GRASS-GIS that are
implemented. I'm interested in suggestions about such algorithms so that
read about them and incorporate them into my final proposal.
Be sure to also look at the R-FUSE algorithm  mentioned on the GSoC
In general, I think that general algorithms such as those two, that do
not linked to sensor specificities would be great.
This said, IIRC i.pansharpen currently has limits in terms of applying
the classical algorithms to images encoded in more than 8 bits.
Improving this (implying changes to the underlying modules) might be
another element of the GSoC project.
