Ge 178 lecture 6 (relief tilt displacement)

  1. 1. GE 178 Lecture 6:Distortion and DisplacementRelief DisplacementTilt Displacement
  3. 3. Distortionshift in the location of an object, which changes the perspective characteristics of the photo
  4. 4. Types of Distortion1. Film and Print Shrinkage – negligible effect*2. Atmospheric Refraction of Light Rays – negligible effect*3. Image Motion4. Lens Distortion*Except for precise mapping projects
  5. 5. Lens Distortion small effects due to the flaws in the optical components (lens) of camera systems leading to distortions typically more serious at the edges of photo radial from the principal point makes objects appear either closer to, or farther from the principal point than they actually are may be corrected using calibration curves examples: car windows/windshields, carnival mirrors
  6. 6. Lens Distortion Lens Distortion
  7. 7. Displacementshift in the location of an object in a photo, which does not change the perspective characteristics of the photo  fiducial distance between an objects image and its true plan position, caused by change in elevation
  8. 8. Types of Displacement1. Curvature of the Earth – negligible effect*2. Relief Displacement – radial from the nadir3. Tilt Displacement – radial from the isocenter*Except for precise mapping projects

  10. 10. ReliefDisplacement
  11. 11. Relief Displacement Error in the position of the point in a photograph because of relief The position of a point in the photograph (which has a central projection) is different from its corresponding position on the map (which has an orthogonal projection) due to relief Radial from the nadir (assuming a vertical photograph, therefore, nadir = center of photo)
  12. 12. Relief Displacement
  13. 13. Relief DisplacementThe farther a point is from the nadir, the greater thedisplacement

  15. 15. Relief Displacement
  16. 16. Relief Displacement r’ CASE 1: ∆r Point is above the datum plane f Hmge (flying height) ∆h datum plane
  17. 17. Relief Displacement CASE 2: r’ Point is below the datum plane ∆r f Hmge (flying height) datum plane ∆h

  19. 19. a‘ a Class r Exercise: Dr Derive the equation for relief displacement DrA’A
  20. 20. Formula for Relief Displacement r h Dr  HWhere: r’ = erroneous radial distance from the center of photo h = height/elevation of the point above/below the datum plane H = flying height above the datum plane
  21. 21. General Conclusion:Elevation and Relief DisplacementThe higher the point is above the datum plane (or the lower it is below the datum plane), the greater the relief displacementThe higher the flying height, the lesser the relief displacement r h Dr  H
  22. 22. Corrected Radial DistanceIf the point on the ground is ABOVE the datum, the corrected position will be towards the center r  r  DrOtherwise, if the point is BELOW the datum, the corrected position will be away from the center r  r  Dr
  23. 23. Occlusion
  24. 24. Occlusion
  25. 25. How can we minimize ∆r? Use only the central part of the photograph (discard the edges) Fly higher  but this would yield a smaller photoscale Fly higher, and use a camera with a larger focal length (for example, use a normal angle camera instead of a wide-angle camera) r h Dr  H
  26. 26. ExampleA 1:15000 aerial photograph was taken using a wide-angle camera. A point on the photograph was identified and its measured distance from the center is 5.4 centimeters. If the corresponding point on the ground is elevated from the datum by 60 meters, determine the displacement due to relief and the correct radial distance of the point from the center of the photo.

  30. 30. Tilt Displacement An error in the position of a point on the photograph due to indeliberate tilting of the aircraft Due to instability of aircraft May be due to tilting of the aircraft along the flight line and/or perpendicular to the flight line Increases radially from the isocenter

  32. 32. Principal Line Line of maximum tilt Line connecting the principal point, isocenter and nadir All lines perpendicular to this line are lines of zero inclination or zero phototilt  this means that all points along a perpendicular line have uniform scale

  34. 34. Phototilt (t) Amount of tilt of the aircraft (and thus the camera lens) with respect to the vertical axis Angle of tilt between the line perpendicular to the horizontal datum and the line perpendicular to the lens
