Quality Potential Sources of Error in the RADARSAT-1 Ortho-rectified Mosaic of Canada
December 2000

The production of the RADARSAT-1 Ortho-rectified Mosaic of Canada was
a very ambitious undertaking. A number of possible sources of error were
scrutinised, and where possible, corrected. These included data coverage,
