Abstract: The key point of super resolution process is the accurate measuring of sub-pixel shift. Any tiny error in measuring such shift leads to an incorrect image focusing. In this paper, methodology of measuring sub-pixel shift using Phase correlation (PC) are evaluated using different window functions, then modified version of (PC) method using high pass filter (HPF) is introduced . Comprehensive analysis and assessment of (PC) methods shows that different natural features yield different shift measurements. It is concluded that there is no universal window function for measuring shift; it mainly depends on the features in the satellite images. Even the question of which window is optimal of particular feature is generally remains open. This paper presents the design of a method for obtaining high accuracy sub pixel shift phase correlation using (HPF).The proposed method makes the change in the different locations that lack of edges easy.
