GEOMETRIC CORRECTION OF REMOTELY SENSED IMAGERY

Systematic Errors: Corrected through analysis of system characteristics and ephemeris Scan Skew: Caused by the forward motion if the platform during the time required for each mirror sweep. The ground swath is not normal t o the ground track but is slightly skewed, producing crosscross -scan geometric distortion MirrorMirror-Scan Velocity Variance: The mirror scanning rate is usually not constant across a given scan, producing along -scan geometric distortion. he tangent Panoramic Distortion: The ground area imaged is proportional to tthe of the scan angle rather than to the angle itself. Because data are sampled at regular intervals, this produces alongalong-scan distortion Platform Velocity: If the speed of the the platform changes, the ground track covered by successive mirror scans changes, producing along -track scale distortion Earth Rotation: Earth rotates as the sensor scans the terrain. This results in a shift of the ground swath being scanned, causing alongalong -scan distortion. Types ofErrors

Non Non- Systematic Errors:

Corrected through the use of ground control points ( GCP ( GCP ’ ’s )

Altitude Variance: If the sensor platform departs from its normal altitude or the terrain increases in elevation, this produces changes in scale or pixel size Platform Attitude: One sensor system axis is usually maintained normal to Earth's surface and the other parallel to the spacecraft's direction of travel. If the sensor departs form this attitude, geometric distortion results.

Definitions Ephemeris: Any tabular statement of the the assigned assigned places placesof of a celestial body for regular regular intervals (Websters (Websters Dict.). Dict.). For example, example, the solar solar ephemeris ephemeris provides provides the exact exact location location of the sun at any given given time of the the day or year. Geocoding: Geocoding: Geographical referencing or coding of data. (Jensen, 1986) Ground Control Point (GCP): A specific pixel on an image or location on a map whose geographic coordinates are known. GCP's are used to to correct geometric geometric distortion distortion in an image by matching image coordinates with map coordinates. Linear Transformation: The transformation of coordinates from one system to another (image (image to map) using a linear linear algebraic algebraic(1st (1storder orderpolynomial) polynomial)f f ormula ormula . NonNon-Linear Transformation: The transformation of coordinates from one system to another (image to map) using a non -linear algebraic (Nth order polynomial) formula Rectification: The process by which the geometry of an image is made planimetric. planimetric. (Jensen, (Jensen, 1986) Registration: Registration:The The process process of of geometrically geometricallyaligning aligningtwo aligning two or or more more sets of image data such that resolution cells for a single ground area can be digit ally visually ally or visually superimposed. A map coordinate system may not be involved.

Resampling: Resampling: The process of extrapolating data values to a new grid. Resampling is the step in rectifying an image that calculates pixel values for the rectified rectified grid from the original original data grid. grid. Root Mean Square Error (RMS) : The RMS is the error term used to determine the accuracy of the transformation from one coordinate system to ano ther. It is the difference between the desired output coordinate for a GCP and the actual

RMS = SQRT ( (X ’ – Xorig )2 + (Y’ (Y’ – Yorig)2 )

Image to Ground Geocorrection: Geocorrection: The correction of digital images to ground coordinates using ground control points collected from maps or GPS.

Sun Synchronous orbits have a angle of inclination of 98.2 degrees from the equator. This results in a “ nonnon-vertical vertical ” ” north orientation. orientation. Further, the Earth rotates on it ’ ’s axis from west to east as the imagery is collected.

Image to Image Geocorrection: Geocorrection: Image to Image correction involves matching the coordinate systems of one digital image to another image acting as a map map reference. reference.

Imagery collected from sensors consist of a rectangular array of pixels which include the effects of earth rotation. Correction of scan lines to account for earth rotation rotation consists of systematically offsetting scans to the west.

Cross-Track Scan Errors This type of error is a function of the distance from the sensor to the target, the instantaneous field of view (IFOV), and the scan angle off nadir. This type of error is termed “ Tangential Tangential ” distortion ” distortion as compared to “ Radial ” ” distortion present in analog aerial photographs.

Calculation of Total RMS

Using a minimum of 4 GCP’ GCP’s, the RMS error is computed as the distance between the input (source) location of a GCP and the retransformed location for the same GCP.

Point Contribution to Total RMS

Evaluating RMS Error Aft er each com put atio n of a tran sfo rmat ion and RMS err or, t here are four options:

Where: E i = error contribution of GCPi Ri = the RMS error for GCPi T = total RMS error

This value reports the normalized contribution contribution of of individual GCP’ GCP’s to the total RMS

• Throw out the GCP with tthe he highest RMS error, assuming that thi s GCP is the least accurate. This assumption should be tested by reviewing the location of the point on the image relative to the reference. Do not take the high RMS for a point for granted. Also, Also, if this is tthhe specific region of the image, removing e only point in aa specific n g the point may be problematic • Tolerate a higher amount re-amount of RMS error. error. If point point removal removal or re allignment cannot be justified. • Increase increasing Increase the the complexity complexity of of transformation by in creasing the the order order of the polynomial. This is justified with imagery that is known to to have non -linear distortion. Using a higher higher polynomial may also also “ over -fit ” the estimate. • Select Select only only the the points points for which you you have the most confidence.

Nearest Neighbor The nearest neighbor approach uses the value of the closest inpu t pixel for the ouput pixel value. To determine determine the the nearest neighbor, the algorithm u ses the inverse of the transformation matrix to calculate the image file coordinates of the desired geographic coordinate. The pixel value occupying the clo sest image file coordinate to the estimated coordinate will be used for the outp ut pixel value in the georeferenced image.

Nearest Neighbor (cont.) ADVANTAGES:

• Output values are the original input values. Other methods of resampling tend to average surrounding values. This may be an important consideration when discriminating between vegetation types or lo cating boundaries. • Since original data are retained, this method is recommended bef ore bef ore classification. • Easy to compute and therefore fastest to use . DISADVANTAGES:

• Produces a choppy, "stair"stair-stepped" effect. The image has a rough appearance relative to the original unrectified data. • Data values may be lost, while other values may be duplicated. F igure 1 shows an input file (orange) with a yellow output file superimpo sed. Input values closest to the center of each output cell are sent to the output file to the right. Notice that values 13 and 22 are lost while values 14 and 24 are duplicated.
