Abstract

The main obstacle to achieving high precision in georeferencing from high-resolution satellite imagery (HRSI) remains the need for provision of good quality ground control points (GCPs), whether the GCPs are used to remove biases in RPC triangulation or to support physical sensor orientation models. The provision of GCPs can be very costly and is often not feasible in remote regions, the very areas where mapping from satellite imagery shows significant potential. In order to drastically reduce the number of GCPs required for georeferencing from HRSI, a generic sensor orientation model incorporating strip adjustment capability has been adopted. Under this approach, the metadata for each separ..
