Paper Abstract

In some flight simulation systems, the imagery is produced by continually applying perspective transformations on a few aerial photographs, which have been previously recorded at some fixed observation points along the expected flight paths. In these systems, it is usually assumed that the terrain is flat. Analyses are presented in this paper for selecting the observation points so that; (1) errors due to hilly terrain are minimized, (2) and all of the required scenery is available on the photographs. In addition, camera characteristics are derived so that the aerial photographs have the minimum required resolution.
