Paper Abstract

This article presents a method to generate ortho-images with digital elevation model and a few ground control points. The method has been integrated to take into account the geometric distortions of the full geometry of viewing (sensor-platform-Earth), and unified to process images from different sensors (VIR and SAR) on various platforms (airborne and spaceborne). Results from eight types of images show an absolute accuracy of 1/3 of a pixel for VIR satellite images and one to two pixels for the other images (SAR and airborne), and a relative accuracy of one pixel between the image. Mosaicing of these ortho-images with the road network overlaid confirms the relative and absolute accuracies.
