I have 2 spot 5 satellite imagery ( 2.5 m) in Color Infrared and i would like to convert them to natural color.As Spot 5 images do not have blue Band Like Landsat.Can someone help me with the process in ArcGis.
You could try the following, and let me know.
say For SPOT imagery,
S1: Green band
S2: Red Band
S3: NIR Band
Use the following equations in Raster Calculator,
I put the above Equations in raster claculator and now i amgetting a not executed error for a raster calculator.
Executing: RasterCalculator "Red = S2
Green = (3 * S1 + S3)/4
Blue = (3 * S1 - S3)/4" C:\Users\Mobii\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb\rastercalc1
Start Time: Wed Mar 04 00:50:59 2015
Red = S2
Blue = (3 * S1 - S3)/4
ERROR 000539: Parsing error IndentationError: unexpected indent (line 8)
Failed to execute (RasterCalculator).

Did you use all the three equations in one go? You need to use Raster Calculator once for each band.
Moreover, in the expression, use only the right-hand side of the equations.
You need to create two rasters, viz., Green and Blue, as the output of the Raster Calculator.
And replace S1, S2 and S3 in the above equations with the Green band, Red band and NIR band of the SPOT data respectively. No need to use the Raster calculator for Red band.
Once the above bands are prepared, create composite bands using the new Blue, Green and Red bands.
Then, use it in proper channels in symbology(Red band in Red Channel, Green band in Green channel and Blue band in Blue Channel) to get the natural colour composite.
OK I will try this and will let you know then.
Yes, a reasonably good pseudo-true color image can be generated from color infrared imagery. We have an example on our resource center that refers specifically to SPOT imagery.
I'll be very brief in my reply, but let me know if you need further detail.
This topic in our Resource Center provides advice re: specific weights to apply to generate an apparent true color image from a color infrared SPOT image:
Let me know if you need further detail!
