The purpose of this article is to develop a preprocessing method for digital multispectral remote sensing images obtained through optical and infrared means in the electromagnetic spectrum. The method aims to ensure invariance with respect to positional formation conditions that determine spatial and radiometric resolution. By implementing homomorphic filtering in this method, we can significantly increase the informative value of processed imagery.

The problem solving, including the development of the spatial and radiometric resolution increase ways for multispectral geospatial data are based on the methods of brightness spatial distribution fusion, methods of data dimension reduction, de-correlation techniques and geometric correction of image spatial distributions.

The method of preprocessing digital remote sensing data has been developed, which is a component of the methodology for identifying geometric shapes (GS) of objects in multi-channel aerospace images, allowing for a significant improvement in their recognition efficiency when noise is present.

 The method of preprocessing photogrammetric scenes using homomorphic filtering to enhance their informational significance is proposed. The method ensures invariance to positional conditions of fixation, improves the accuracy of further recognition, eliminates the drawbacks of known methods associated with the existence of parametric uncertainty dependence, the features of fixation of species information, low values of information indices of synthesized images, and computational process peculiarities.

Practical value.
Practical value is consists in improving of identification accuracy of objects GS in digital geospatial data, in significant increasing of raster multispectral images information value and in rising of automated image processing efficiency. The use of the method can greatly enhance the value and usefulness of multispectral photogrammetric images in a wide range of applications, from environmental monitoring to urban planning.
