ISPRS 1998 Stereogrammetric Mapping of Mars
The Viking Orbiters acquired quality stereo coverage of a significant fraction of Mars in 1976-1980. Several groups have been using this stereo coverage to produce global and regional scale topographic maps of Mars. The LPI group has been using these data to map the topography of specific geologic structures and landforms. Our software uses scene-recognition to map parallax to 1/5th pixel (being upgraded to 1/10th pixel) precision. It also allows us to automatically trim our DEM data on the basis of height error or correlation coefficient (of the scene matching). Manual editting is also performed.
