Abstract:

The use of web-based tools for viewing and sharing imagery has expanded significantly over the last few years. Web services such as Google Earth have whet the publics appetite for georegistered and georectified imagery. While there is a large amount of registered imagery available for display on these Servers, much of the data is old and outdated, some by many years. NAVSYS has developed a GPSinertialvideo product GI-Eye that can be used to collect georegistered imagery in real-time. We have combined this with a GeoReferenced Information Manager GRIM Server that allows this imagery to be converted to a georectified image. In this paper, we describe the GI-Eye and GRIM products and the auto-mosaicing capability that they provide. We also include examples of mosaic imagery that was generated during flight tests of the system.
