Abstract: The WorldView-1 image of Heard Island (23 March 2008) that was purchased by the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) and the University of Tasmania (UTAS) in June 2008 has to be geometrically corrected to match the Quickbird and IKONOS imagery in the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC) satellite image catalogue. In addition, the WorldView-1 imagery contains two separate image strips that cover ... View entire text

Cameras Ancillary Description
Quality DigitalGlobe's WorldView-1 specification states a geometric accuracy of 6.5 m (CE90) at nadir with an estimated accuracy of 4.0 - 5.5 m (CE90) in most cases. The WorldView-1 image was orthorectified with the 2002 RADARSAT DEM of Heard Island. With this orthorectification process the large-scale relief distortions are removed from the image resulting in even higher geometric accuracies.
