Thanks to their ease of acquisition and up-to-datedness, satellite images, together with aerial photographs, are playing an increasingly significant role in numerous geographic information system (GIS) applications. Unlike existing maps, raw satellite images and scanned aerial photographs have a local coordinate system. They do not have the right projection. Neither do they have any scale nor a proper orientation. During data acquisition the pla…
