In this paper, we introduce a method and algorithm for resolution enhancement of low-resolution surface topography data by fusing it with corresponding high-resolution intensity images. This fusion is carried out by linking the three-dimensional topographical map to its intensity image via an intrinsic image-based shape-from-shading algorithm. Through computational simulation and physical experiments, the effectiveness of the proposed method and the repeatability have been evaluated, and the computational cost has been shown to be less than other state-of-the-art algorithms. This proposed method can be easily integrated with high-speed in-line measurements of high-dynamic-range surfaces.
