Abstract. Pan-sharpened images of RASAT and GÖKTÜRK-2 satellites were generated using High Pass Filter (HPF) in this paper. GÖKTÜRK-2 satellite has 11 bits radiometric resolution, 2.5 m GSD in panchromatic band and 5 m GSD in VNIR bands whereas RASAT has 8 bits radiometric resolution, 7.5 m GSD in panchromatic band and 15 m GSD in visible bands. Quantitative analysis was carried out by spatial metric while the while the products were qualitatively analysed with visual interpretation by an expert group. The values for spatial metric were estimated as 0.9678 and 0.9542 for RASAT and GÖKTÜRK-2, respectively. It can be concluded that the success of HPF is almost satisfactory considering the optimal value of spatial metric is 1. The visual analysis shows the performance of GÖKTÜRK-2 is higher than RASAT since the higher radiometric and geometric resolution of GÖKTÜRK-2. All operations were run in SharpQ derived by the authors in Matlab environment.
