Paper Abstract

This paper is dedicated to investigation of accuracy characteristics of Earth surface mapping, using polarimetric technique. The author had proposed and realized a special technique for application of natural polarized scattered Sun light; linear and circular polarization components of reflected light are used. The images were obtained by four-channel photograph surveying system which included camera MSK-4 with isopanchromatic type film, four glass spectral filters and four polarizing elements, placed before objectives. Such images were obtained for anisotropy properties study of underlying surface which is modeled as little anisotropy absorption medium. The accuracy analysis of proposed technique is done by means of computer modeling on the base of real images. Statistical characteristics of output data deviation as function of survey parameters deviation are given. The regression equation of obtained data is built.
