Summary:
The project manager has much to deliberate when choosing a software package for image rectification/registration. He/she must be able to perform a cost analysis evaluation of the packages in question, and determine which package will provide the highest level of positional accuracy. Objective and subjective analysis of six software packages, ArcView Image Analysis, GeoMedia Pro, Arc/Info 8.1, ERMAPPER, ENVI and Idrisi 3.2, and their multiple products (polynomials and triangulations) provide the basis with which the project manager may attain this goal. He/she is familiarized with the user interface of each package, through detailed step-by-step methodology. Positional accuracy of each product is compared to Ground Control Points (GCPs) derived from a Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS). The accuracy of each product is also compared to the industry standard USGS DOQQ, and it is discovered that while simple rectification procedures may produce mean errors acceptable to the specifications of NMAS, the strictest application of these standards reveal that these products are not accurate enough to satisfy the USGS standards.
