This paper provides an investigation into the camera calibration of a Vexcel UltraCam D digital aerial camera which was undertaken as part of the EuroSDR Digital Camera Calibration project. This paper will present results from two flights flown over a test site at Fredrikstad-Norway using established camera calibration techniques. Furthermore, it proposes an alternative approach. The "new" multi cone digital camera systems are geometrically complex. The image used for photogrammetric analysis…

PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION INTO THE GEOMETRIC CALIBRATION OF THE MICASENSE REDEDGE-M MULTISPECTRAL CAMERA
TLDR
This paper will investigate the camera calibration parameters between the five bands of the MicaSense RedEdge-M sensor from laboratory trials, and demonstrate the need for distortion correction separately within each band before using the images for photogrammetry.
Geometric Calibration of an Aerial Multihead Camera System for Direct Georeferencing Applications
TLDR
The objective of this paper is to present an in-flight calibration methodology for multihead camera systems and its assessment for DG applications and the results of the experiments shown the viability of the proposed methodology.
Development And Comparison Of The New Digital Aerial Cameras
A variety of digital airborne imaging systems are now in operation. Many are multiple lens systems producing ‘larger’ digital image formats than from a single lens system, The Digital Modular aerial
Optical orientation determination for airborne and spaceborne line cameras
TLDR
Two different approaches are presented that allow the determination of a line camera’s orientation changes optically and the determined orientation changes can be used to derive the precise absolute orientation of an unstabilized airborne line camera.
Integration of LiDAR and photogrammetric data for enhanced aerial triangulation and camera calibration
TLDR
It is suggested that the manuscript should be rewritten in a chapters-by- chapters format to facilitate more detailed discussion of the author's research and its aims and methods.
