niques can further be distinguished, depending on whether the images are fused in
the spatial domain, or in the transform domain. The pixel-level fusion in the spatial
domain is considered as a local operation where the individual pixels are processed
to form the pixels of the fused image. The transform domain techniques, however,
generate a fused image globally. The change in a single coefficient of the transformed
image can reflect into a global (image-level) change in the output. This may lead to
some undesirable effects in the fused image [205].
A large number of pixel-based techniques which span a whole plethora of appli-
cations have been proposed over the years. Some of these techniques have proved
to be very successful even across multiple application domains. The scope of this
