GEOMETRIC PROCESSING AND POSITIONING TECHNIQUES processing models can be implemented. This step can eliminate the influence of image distortions on the accuracy of the terrestrial information extracted from satellite imagery. However, the research results on this aspect of imaging remain limited. 2. 1. 1 Coupled Device) array; and the projection mode that the user ultimately selects. Toutin (2004a) suggested that the sources of systematic errors that produce geometric distortions of satellite remote-sensing imagery can be classified into two types: errors from the observation devices (the remote-sensing platform, the sensor, and other measuring devices of the imaging system such as gyroscope and astronomical instruments) and errors that arise from the observed objects (such as atmosphere and earth).

Summary The geometric processing and object positioning of remote-sensing imagery are techniques used to map a remote-sensing image into a specified object-space coordinate system, according to the geometric processing model of a satellite sensor with a few ground control points (GCPs).

Because outer space is such a harsh environment, the performance of all satellite sensors degrades over time. To achieve consistent and accurate measurements that can be used to detect climatic and environmental change, the DNs need to be transformed into physical quantities. Calibration measurements can be conducted in three stages. Pre-flight calibration measures a sensor’s radiometric properties before that sensor is sent into space. Pre-flight instrument calibration is performed at the instrument builder’s facilities.
