Characteristics of Remote Sensors on KOMPSAT-I
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 1~16
Korea Aerospace Research Institute(KARI) is developing a Korea Multi-Purpose Satellite I(KOMPSAT-I) which accommodates Electro-Optical Camera(EOC), Ocean Color Imager(OCI), Space Physics Sensor(SPS) for cartography, ocean color monitoring, and space environment monitoring respectively. The satellite has the weight of about 500 kg and is operated on the sun synchronized orbit with the altitude of 685km, the orbit period of 98 minutes, and the orbit revisit time of 28days. The satellite will be launched in the third quarter of 1999 and its lifetime is more than 3 years. EOC has cartography mission to provide images for the production of scale maps, including digital elevation models, of Korea from a remote earth view in the KOMPSAT orbit. EOC collects panchromatic imagery with the ground sample distance(GSD) of 6.6m and the swath width of 15km at nadir through the visible spectral band of 510-730 nm. EOC scans the ground track of 800km per orbit by push-broom and body pointed method. OCI mission is worldwide ocean color monitoring for the study of biological oceanography. OCI is a multispectral imager generating 6 color ocean images with and <1km GSD by whisk-broom scanning method. OCI is designed to provide on-orbit spectral band selectability in the spectral range from 400nm to 900nm. The color images are collected through 6 primary spectral bands centered at 443, 490, 510, 555, 670, 865nm or 6 spectral bands selected in the spectral range via ground commands after launch. SPS consists of High Energy Particle Detector(HEPD) and Ionosphere Measurement Sensor(IMS). HEPD has mission to characterize the low altitude high energy particle environment and to study the effects of radiation environment on microelectronics. IMS measures densities and temperature of electrons in the ionosphere and monitors the ionospheric irregularities in KOMPSAT orbit.
On Feasibility of Using Scanned Maps for Ground Control Point Marking
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 17~25
This paper presents a GCP marking technique using scanned maps. Twelve maps with a scale of 1:250, 000 were scanned and stored as raster images. The distortion factors of scanned maps were modelled by polynomials. The coefficients of the polynomials were determined by a least squre fit. This technique does not require a bulky and expensive digitizing table so that it is suitable for a low-cost pre-processing system. The GCP marking using this technique showed a sufficient accuracy for KITSAT1, 2 narrow camera images.
Radiometric and Geometric Correction of the KITSAT-1 CCD Earth Images
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 26~42
The CCD Earth Images Experiment(CEIE) is one of the main payload of the KITSAT-1. Since it was launched on Oct. 10, 1992, the CEIE has taken more than 500 images on the Earth surface world-wide so far. An image from the space is very different from a feature on the real Earth surface due to various radiometric and geometric distortions. Preprocessing to remove those distortions has to take place before the images data are processed and analyzed further for various applications. This paper describes the procedure to perform preprocessing including radiometric and geometric correction.e-processing system. The GCP marking using this technique showed a sufficient accuracy for KITSAT1,2 narrow camera images.
Relational matching for solving initial approximation
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 43~59
The objective of this research is to investigate the potential of relational matching in one of the fundamental photogrammetric processes, that is initial approximation problem. The automatic relative orientation procedures of aerial stereopairs have been investigated. The fact that the existing methods suffer from approximations, distortions (geometric and radiometric), occlusions, and breaklines is the motivation to investigate relational matching which appears to be a much more general solution. An elegant way of solving the initial approximation problem by using distinct(special) relationship from relational description is suggested and experimented. As for evaluation function, the cost function was implemented. The detection of erroneous matching is incorporated as a part of proposed relational matching scheme. Experiments with real urban area images where large numbers of repetitive patterns, breaklines, and occluded areas are present prove the feasibility of implementation of the proposed relational matching scheme. The investigation of relational matching in the domain of image matching problem provides advantages and disadvantages over the existing image matching methods and shows the future area of development and implementation of relational matching in the field of digital photogrammetry.
A Study on the Application of NOAA/AVHRR Data -Analysis of cloud top and surface temperature,albedo,sea surface temperature, vegetation index, forest fire and flood-
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 60~80
AVHRR(Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) on NOAA satellite provides data in five spectral, one in visible range, one in near infrared and three in thermal range. In this paper, application of NOAA/AVHRR data is studied for environment monitoring such as cloud top temperature, surface temperature, albedo, sea surface temperature, vegetation index, forest fire, flood, snow cover and so on. The analyses for cloud top temperature, surface temperature, albedo, sea surface temperature, vegetation index and forest fire showed reasonable agreement. But monitoring for flood and snow cover was uneasy due to the limitations such as cloud contamination, low spatial resolution. So this research had only simple purpose to identify well-defined waterbody for dynamic monitoring of flood. Based on development of these basic algorithms, we have a plan to further reseach for environment monitoring using AVHRR data.
Effects of Atmospheric Refraction on High Resolution Image Geometry
Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 12, issue 1, 1996, Pages 81~88
The effects of atmospheric refraction of rays on the geometry of high-resolution images such as the KOMPSAT-EOC images are described. An atmospheric refraction mechanism is modelled and the geometric errors caused by the refraction are calculated from the model simulation. This paper shows that a maximum geometric error of 1 pixel (7m) occurs from the standard atmospheric condition. Severer geometric distortions in images cause from an atmopheric abnormality.
