spatial resolution

An MRI term for the ability to delineate minute adjacent objects/points in an image, generally measured in line pairs per mm (lp/mm).

In recent years, with the launch of several advanced remote sensing satellites, such as IKONOS and GeoEye-1, the spatial resolution of remote sensing images has been increased greatly, meaning that the information in a remote sensing image has been much more than a low spatial resolution remote sensing image, which brings great challenge to the analysis and processing of high spatial remote sensing images [1, 2].
