FLIGHT PLANNING FOR STEREO RADAR MAPPING

Pairs of terrair-imaging radar images may be viewed and measured stereoscopically in order to obtain elevation data for topographic mapping. An analysis of the technical and economic considerations in selecting flight parameters for mapping projects is presented. Both parallel and right-angle flightpaths are considered. The results indicate that systems as presently constituted have the potential to produce data adequate for original medium-scale mapping, and that the right-angle mode is superior to the parallel-flightpath mode under the assumptions made if psychophysical difficulties in image fusion are not encountered. /Author/
