ISPRS 2001 Improved 3D Mars Control Net from a Combined Adjustment of Viking Images and Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter Data
The current global spatial control net of Mars provides the geodetic basis for an orthoimage map composed of image data sets obtained from VIKING missions from 1976 to 1980. This map is not consistent with data returned from the Mars Observer Laser Altimeter (MOLA) onboard the spacecraft Mars Global Surveyor (MGS). In order to adjust the VIKING orthoimage map to MOLA, a new photogrammetric analysis of the global control net including MOLA data has been initiated. Altogether, coordinates of more than 3700 Martian surface points and outer orientation parameters of more than 1140 images are to be determined in the adjustment process. The methods applied are presented in this report.
