Paper Abstract

The Leica ADS40 is a line scanning sensor that collects stereo panchromatic imagery and 4 discrete multispectral bands in a 12,000 pixel-wide swath. The Z/I Imaging DMC is a frame based sensor that produces 13,824x7,680 pixel panchromatic images and 3072x2048 pixel multispectral images, which are normally pan sharpened to produce high resolution RGB and color infrared products. The suitability of the two systems for multispectral remote sensing and photogrammetric applications are compared, and contrasted with other film and digital alternatives. Results indicate that the DMC has an advantage for large scale photogrammetry applications, and the ADS40 is superior for remote sensing applications.
