AbstractThe scale effect is a common phenomenon in geography that restricts the development of space science, such as remote sensing. Scale issues have elicited increasing attention from scientists due to the development of quantitative remote sensing. Developing a reasonable scaling method to promote the extensive application of remote sensing technology is urgent. In this study, existing upscaling methods in quantitative remote sensing are reviewed from two aspects, namely, pixel-to-pixel and point-to-pixel upscaling. The methods are analyzed and compared in terms of the construction, basic principles, characteristics, limitations, and applicable conditions of the corresponding models. Pixel-to-pixel upscaling methods can be divided into two types, namely, inversion-aggregation and aggregation-inversion, according to the conversion mechanism. Inversion-aggregation methods are classified as mathematics and physics based. Mathematics-based methods consist of classic image process approaches, empirical regression methods, and fractal-based methods. The principle of inversion-aggregation methods is explicit and clear, and the values acquired by such methods are generally considered true values. However, these methods require a pixel-by-pixel inversion process, which leads to low operational efficiency. Aggregation-inversion methods are categorized as input parameter-, model-, and output parameter-based approaches. Pixel-by-pixel retrieval is avoided in such methods. From the perspective of the power determination strategy, point-to-pixel upscaling methods can be classified as simple average, empirical regression, geostatistical, and Bayesian. Simple average methods depend on a reasonable evaluation of spatial heterogeneity and an efficient sampling strategy. Empirical regression methods build the empirical statistical relationship on the basis of a large amount of sample data. Geostatistical methods consider the spatial autocorrelation and spatial distribution characteristics of variables. Bayesian methods integrate high-spatial-resolution remote sensing data and prior knowledge to acquire an optimal estimation of land surface parameters at a low spatial resolution. Different point-to-pixel upscaling methods present different advantages and characteristics. Combining the temporal-spatial distribution characteristics of parameters, prior knowledge, and applicability of upscaling methods is necessary to select reasonable upscaling methods in practical applications. On the basis of this analysis, we summarize the problems in existing scaling research from four aspects, namely, discrete and continuous model, statistical and physical model, universal and targeted model, and use of prior knowledge or not. Several other problems, such as the definition of true value, uncertainty analysis, and scale domain and scale threshold determination, have rarely been discussed in upscaling research and require the attention of scientists. We also provide several possible development directions of upscaling methods in quantitative remote sensing. These directions provide important guidance to scaling theory research and its practical application.
