Kortlægning baseret på satellitbilleder

Student thesis: Master Thesis and HD Thesis

  • Nikolaj Miller
This master thesis is based on the use of satellite images for topographic mapping. It is tested whether it is possible to use high-resolution satellite images for the production of DDO land in Denmark. The geometric accuracy of two scenes from the high-resolution satellite Quickbird is analyzed through tests.The tests concern the geometric and radiometric quality. Furthermore it is examined whether satellite images can replace aerial images in the production of DDO land. It is concluded that it is not directly possible to replace DDO land with high-resolution satellite images. This conclusion is based on the fact that the satellite images are expensive to use. Furthermore it is difficult to conduct a scan that will cover the whole country. Through the results of the tests show that the quality of the images is as good as the already existing orthophotos. Based on the conclusion the future of highresolution satellite images is put into perspective.
