ISPRS 1998 Digital Topographic Mapping of Mercury
We describe a cartographic project to re-process and semi-automatically stereo match Mariner 10 vidicon stereo pair images. Three different patch-based digital stereo matching algorithms have been tested: a JPL VICAR Tracker3 program, an ISIS stereo matcher, and the Gotcha matcher from University College London/Laserscan. Comparisons will be made with Viking Orbiter stereo pairs. One problem found, when using Mariner 10 images, has been with the noise present and its effects on the automatic detection of reseau calibration marks. Manual inspection of the results must be used to detect such errors.
