Paper Abstract

Photogrammetry and remote sensing (RS) provide procedures for deriving geometric, radiometric and thematic information from image data. A variety of aircraft and space-borne sensors are available to capture image data. Different standards and specifications of quality assessment for optical remote sensing data are available. Due to the possibilities of absolute geometric and radiometric calibration digital sensors provide new promising opportunities to create value added products like digital elevation models, land-use maps etc. Such cameras combine the high geometric quality with the radiometric standards of earth observation systems. The determination of image quality of remote sensing data can be distinguished in (spectral) radiometric and geometric aspects. Standards contains different metrics for accuracy issues (spectral, radiometric and geometric accuracy) and for performance parameters like SNR, MTF. Image artefacts (caused e.g. by compression) are an additional important topic. The paper gives an overview of the current debate and the possibility of standardization.
