DISTORTION AND RECTIFICATION OF IR

INFRARED IMAGERY POSSESSES DISTORTIONS WHICH INCREASE RAPIDLY TOWARDS THE EDGES OF THE SCAN LINES. THESE DISTORTIONS RENDER THE INTERPRETATION AND STEREOSCOPIC VISION OF THE IMAGERY DIFFICULT. ALSO, AS THE DISTORTIONS ARE NON-LINEAR, APPROXIMATE MEASUREMENTS OF GROUND DISTANCES FROM THE IMAGERY CANNOT BE DIRECTLY DETERMINED. A METHOD WAS DEVELOPED FOR RECTIFICATION OF THIS IMAGERY. THE ORTHOPHOTOPRINTER ATTACHMENT TO THE ANALYTICAL PLOTTER WAS USED FOR THIS PURPOSE. THE METHOD IS AUTOMATIC AND CAN BE USED WITH SIMILAR PRINTERS WHICH ARE COMPUTER-CONTROLLED. THE SAME TECHNIQUE CAN BE FOLLOWED TO REDUCE OR ELIMINATE DISTORTIONS OF SYSTEMATIC NATURE IN CONVENTIONAL AND NON-CONVENTIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
