Topographic Correction for Differential Illumination Effects on Ikonos Satellite Imagery

  title={Topographic Correction for Differential Illumination Effects on Ikonos Satellite Imagery},
  author={Kah Haw Law and J. Jake Nichol},
The problem of differential terrain illumination on satellite imagery has been investigated for at least 20 years and has not been solved satisfactorily. Most past research has been conducted on Landsat imagery where the look angle is nadir. There is no research on topographic correction of IKONOS imagery, which has a higher spatial resolution. The high spatial resolution of IKONOS imagery requires a more accurate digital elevation model (DEM) than is obtained using standard interpolators. This… CONTINUE READING
