Paper Abstract

The model supported positioning (MSP) project will provide more accurate horizontal and vertical absolute position information for aerial imagery, using image understanding (IU) technology and photogrammetry in conjunction with ground control and three-dimensional (3D) object models. The MSP architecture consists of three principal elements: (1) in-line positioning function (IPF); (2) registration adjustment function (RAF); and (3) control feature positioning function (CFPF). The IPF is a production function, automatically processing imagery, control and camera data, to provide improved positioning capability. The RAF is the application function, where imagery exploitation benefits from improved camera data, and through internal operations, generates data to support analysis and maintenance of ground truth positioning. The CFPF develops the initial control package that is used as the IPF and maintains control data over time as sites are repeatedly imaged. Our design allows for all three functions, though logically linked, to be physically displaced.
