IKONOS imagery has been used in many commercial, government, and research applications ranging from environment monitoring, to coastal change detection, and to national security. The high costs of IKONOS high end products ~Pro and Precision products! make it extremely attractive to find practical methods that use lower-cost IKONOS Geo products to produce(More)
OBJECTIVES Psoriasis is a Th-1/17 mediated inflammatory disease associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Inflammation may modulate lipoprotein particle number and directly impair HDL functions, in particular reverse cholesterol transport (RCT). We sought to study how chronic in vivo inflammation modulates lipoprotein particle(More)
To date, orbital and ground image data have been mostly separately processed for topographic mapping in Mars landed missions. We are in the process of developing a method for the integration of orbital and ground image networks to enhance precision mapping. In this research, HiRISE stereo images were used as orbital data while ground data include MER-B(More)

Rover localization accuracy is critical for Mars surface exploration missions. It is especially crucial for future longrange rover missions, such as MER (Mars Exploration Rover) 2003. The geometry of the rover image traverse network is one of the most important factors to achieving high accuracy. A systematic study of geometric image traverse design was(More)
Information technology is increasingly used to support civil infrastructure systems that are large, complex heterogeneous, and distributed. These dynamic systems include communication systems, roads, bridges, traffic control facilities, and facilities for the distribution of water, gas and electricity. Mobile mapping is a new technology to capture(More)
The latest generation of high-resolution commercial imaging satellites, such as IKONOS and QuickBird, has opened a new era of earth observation and digital mapping. This paper presents the geometric modeling principles and photogrammetric processing methods involved in high-precision mapping using stereo IKONOS and QuickBird images. First, the imaging(More)
High-resolution (submeter) orbital imagers opened possibilities for Mars topographic mapping with unprecedented precision. While the typical sensor model for other Martian orbiters has been the linear array CCD, HiRISE is based on a more complicated structure involving combination of 14 separate linear array CCDs. To take full advantage of this(More)
This paper presents an image network-based technology designed for long-range onboard rover localization. This integrated overhead and ground image network provides a global geometric configuration. Incorporation of this image network with our unique incremental bundle adjustment and visual odometry methodologies ensures optimal localization accuracy over(More)
