ISPRS 2003 DEM Generation from MGS NA Stereo Images
One of the primary tasks of the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) mission is to produce precision mapping products over the Mars surface [Albee et al, 2001]. Properties and capabilities of MOC NA (Mars Orbiter Camera, Narrow Angle) stereo images for digital elevation model (DEM) generation are studied [Ivanov and Lorre, 2002; Kirk, et al, 2002]. DEM over selected candidate landing sites are produced and their suitability for landing mission is analyzed [Kirk, et al]. However, due to the lack of distinct features and poor contrast of the MOC images, the available commercial photogrammetric tool cannot provide sufficient and reliable matching results for DEM production. This paper presents a solution and evaluates its uncertainty.
