Abstract

Orthorectification  of  satellite  imagery  can  be  done  in  two  ways  i.e.,  rigorous sensor  model  and  the  approximation  model  of  the  satellite’s  orbit.  Dependence  on  physicalparameters,  to  make  rigorous  sensor  model  is  more  complicated  and  difficult  to  apply.  The approximation  model  can be either  Rational Polynomial Coefficients (RPC)  model  or  parallel projection  system.  RPC  is  a  mathematical  model  which  is  not  depends  on  the  sensor.  It  is used to improve the positioning accuracy when the parameter of the physical sensor model is  unknown.  This  study  assessed  orthorectification  of  SPOT-4  using  the  RPC  model  with  7 coefficients. Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) of GCPs obtained from the study  was less than 1  pixel.  RPC  did  not  depend  on  physical  and  satellite  orbit  parameters.  Thus  the  RPC  was simpler and easier to apply.
