Paper Abstract

The S-190A Multispectral Photographic Facil-ity, has produced a large volume of imagery from Skylabs 2,3, and 4. The imagery has been analyzed in detail to a) assist users of the film in evaluating the potential and limitations of the photographic data; and b) to assess the performance of the camera. This program has also provided an opportunity to assess the effectiveness and precision of certain image evaluation techniques. Resolution has been evaluated as a function of spectral band, EREP pass, target orientation, field of view, exposure, contrast, et al. Methods being employed in the analysis are Visual Edge Matching (VEM), and Edge Slope Analysis ("MTF"), for the resolution evaluation. The quality of registered imagery is being analyzed by utilizing the Itek Registration Printer and a computer assisted stereo comparator, image matching technique.
