TELEVISION FROM SPACE

THE EARTH RESOURCES SATELLITE WILL INCLUDE THREE HIGH- RESOLUTION TELEVISION CAMERAS, EACH OPERATING ON A DIFFERENT SPECTRAL BAND. IN MANY APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS LAND-USE SURVEYS, THE DATA WILL BE CORRELATED WITH TOPOGRAPHIC MAPS. HOWEVER, TELEVISION SYSTEMS ARE SUBJECT TO PHOTOGRAMMETRIC ERRORS, AND PRE-PROCESSING OF THE DATA IS NECESSARY IF THE DESIRED PHOTOGRAMMETRIC QUALITY IS TO BE ACHIEVED. THE HIGH- RESOLUTION SYSTEM OF THE EARTH RESOURCES MISSION MUST BE PROCESSED IN REAL TIME INCLUDING CORRECTIONS FOR PHOTOGRAMMETRIC ERRORS SUCH AS SCALE, SKEW, ROLL, YAW, PITCH, EARTH ROTATION, ETC. /PE/
