Paper Abstract

Today's modern image processing software that removes pointing angle and platform anomalies through the photogrammetric orthorectification process offers some utility that if mitigated to hardware could provide near real-time on platform or on sensor capability. The orthorectification process, however, is so computation intensive and time consuming that real time operation is generally not available. This paper describes a low-cost means of performing real-time orthorectification, a brief overview of the orthorectification process and how it relates to targeting and location measurement. Also included in the presentation is a dynamic demonstration of two commercial software packages being used to extra geocoordinate information from a high resolution digital image.
