Paper Abstract

An important step in determining the line/sample to latitude/longitude transformation in the Voyager images of the Jovian system is to locate in each frame the position of the planet center to sub-pixel accuracy. A method of accomplishing this based upon automatic recognition of the planet limb was developed and is being used on a production basis at JPL. This paper discusses the algorithm and its limitations.
