ISPRS 2004 Combined Bundle Adjustment of MOC Stereo Images and MOLA Altimetry Data for Precise Mars Topographic Mapping

application/pdf 184 kB

Launched in 1996, Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) carries two types of mapping equipments: Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) and Mar Orbiter Camera (MOC). MOLA collects accurate laser altimetry data…

ISPRS 2002 High-Resolution Topomapping of Mars Orbiter Camera Narrow-Angle Images

application/pdf 800 kB

We describe our initial experiences producing controlled digital elevation models (DEMs) of Mars with horizontal resolutions of ≤10 m and vertical precisions of ≤2 m. Such models are of intense…
