Supported Image Formats for Rigorous Orthorectification


The following is a list of image formats that have been successfully tested with Rigorous Orthorectification. The metadata listed next to each image format or sensor must accompany the imagery, and the imagery must be in its native format, filename, and directory structure, exactly as delivered by the data provider:

Aerial Camera Data

Rigorous Orthorectification provides limited support for digital aerial image files from the UltraCam (Level-3 processing only), Applanix DSS, and ADS40/ADS80 cameras. When opening aerial camera data from the ENVI Orthorectification Wizard, select Aerial in the Select Sensor Type dialog).

You can add support for other frame cameras by creating an exterior/interior orientation description of your frame camera in the form of an XML file. See the help article "Supporting custom frame cameras in Rigorous Orthorectification" on our website.

For UltraCam data, you must separate RGB images, color-infrared (CIR) images, and panchromatic images, in different directories. All must be at the same level as the Lvl03 directory. Following is a suggested directory structure:

Lvl03/
Lv103_pan/
  put panchromatic data here
Lv103_rgb/      
  put RGB images here
Lv103_cir/
  put CIR images here
