Pansharpening of Landsat 30 m data to 15 m resolution and then reprojection of the Landsat 15 m data into Sentinel-2 20 m resolution

First, 'ProLPAD30to15.m' is used to finish the first step of LPAD, i.e., downscaling 30 m Landsat 8 OLI bands into 15 m using 15 m panchromatic band. Parameters need changes:
%% (1) 'dataDir': the data directory to store 15 m panchromatic and 30 m OLI files %% (2) 'PanFile': the pan file name %% (3) 'MSFile': the low resolution MS file name, keep it the original size (do not resample) %% the following parameters also need change (optional) %% (4) 'rgb_index': which three bands are blue, green and reb bands, setting them correctly is extremely important %% (5) 'sharped_index': which bands are to be downscaled/sharpened %% (6) 'scaleF': the re-scale factor of the reflectance 1) Note RGB bands must be included and the rgb_index must be correctly specified. 2) Note that geotiff formats with correct UTM coordinates information are needed for 30 m and 15 m bands; 3) Both cropped (without resampling) L1T and original L1T data can be used as input; 4) When cropping the data, make sure the geographic extent of the 30 m images are larger than that of the 15 m panchromatic image, the software will automatically crop the MS image according to the panchromatic extent; 5) If the size of the panchromatic image has odd number, the last row or column will not be processed. Since original L1T images have m*n 30 m pixels and (2m-1)*(2n-1) 15 m panchromatic pixels, the output will have (2m-2)*(2n-2) 15 m downscaled pixels.
Then, 'ProLPAD15to20.m' is used to finish the second step of LPAD, i.e., reprojecting the 15 m (or 30 m) Landsat data into the Sentinel-2 20 m resolution.
1) the input data of 'ProLPAD15to20.m' is the output of 'ProLPAD30to15.m'; 2) both bilinear and cubic convolution resampling approaches are provided; set the variable 'resampler='bl' or 'cc'' to choose; 3) the 'bl_cc_resampling_at.m' will be invoked, in which the affine transformation coefficients between Landsat 20 m and Sentinel-2 20 m data are provided.
