The geometric correction of airborne scanner imagery has conventionally been performed using ground control. Parametric geometric correction methods are less reliant on ground control and have potential for automation. Recently the possibility of parametrically correcting airborne scanner imagery has become viable because of advances in the availability and accuracy of devices that may be used to measure the exterior orientation of an airborne platform. This paper describes a provisional parametric correction study initiated by the UK Natural Environment Research Council. Flight trials were flown and exterior orientation parameters measured by an inertial system were used to produce parametrically corrected images. The results of this study demonstrate the feasibility of the parametric correction approach.
