A method, based on the Karhunen-Loève (KL) transformation, to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of a multispectral data cube is presented. As an illustration we have re-analyzed near-infrared multi-spectral images of the young planetary nebula NGC 7027 previously observed by Cox et al. ([CITE]). Our KL analysis clearly shows an enhancement of both spectral and spatial information, particularly in the case of low signal-to-noise ratio images.
