Resolution plays a major role for interpretation and analysis of an image. Super Resolution is a technique to enhance the resolution of an image from single or multiple low resolved images, which gives detailed information present in an image. In this paper, we describe several methods for Super Resolution (SR) that enhances the quality of an image. Mainly the methods are divided into frequency domain and spatial domains. Here, we stated comparison of different approaches, challenges and issues for SR and applications of SR in practical world e. g. in medical imaging, satellite imaging, and forensics.
