Using surface models to alter the geometry of real images Palmer, Michael Richard
Many applications of image analysis and image processing involve the alteration of the geometry of real images. This thesis presents the theory and implementation of three types of geometrically altered imagery: synthetic orthographic stereo pairs, synthetic perspective stereo pairs, and synthetic airborne scanner imagery. The real image is altered as a function of a corresponding surface model. Included is a determination of surface points which are hidden under the assumed imaging geometry and, in the case of radar systems, a determination of surface points which contribute to pixel layover. In this research, a digital terrain model determines the underlying surface geometry of the real image.
