Abstract:

The computer processes studied include ingestion of satellite pictorial data with digitization and digital pictorial display data location, which includes rectification, automatic mosaicing, and mapping transformations and data analysis, such as differentiation, slicing, and contouring of the data from pictorial intensity, and cloud amount determination. Data from TIROS III, Orbit 509 frames is used to demonstrate the techniques and results of rectification, mosaicing, and cloud cover amount determination. Also included are examples of reduced and full resolution digitized TIROS TV pictures.
