Abstract

Precise registration and orthorectification of remote sensing images are the basic processes for quantitative remote sensing applications, especially for multi-temporal image analysis. In this paper, we present an automated precise registration and orthorectification package (AROP) for Landsat and Landsat-like data processing. The Landsat and Landsat-like satellite images acquired from different sensors at different spatial resolutions and projections can be re-projected, co-registered, and orthorectified to the same projection, geographic extent, and spatial resolution using a common base image through a combined resampling strategy; this allows us to perform multi-temporal image analysis directly. This paper presents and tests the AROP package on Landsat and Landsat-like data. The package is now freely available from our research web site.
