Paper Abstract

Digital cameras and imaging/non-imaging spectrometers covering the ultraviolet through long-wave infrared wavelengths are readily available and affordable for use by scientists and emergency responders. An important addition that will enhance the value of these precision sensors as tools in the hands of scientists and emergency responders is the capability to produce automated geo-registered or ortho-rectified imagery maps from their data. This paper describes the Mapping System Interface Card (MSIC), a low cost, compact, realtime precision metadata annotator with embedded INS/GPS designed specifically to convert commercial-offthe- shelf (COTS) sensors with Camera Link standard data streams into mapping systems for airborne remote sensing applications.
