396 m. 2), the maximum image coordinate offset caused by the curvature of the earth on the edge of the satellite imagery is only 1/4 pixel, which is equivalent to the measurement error of the image-point coordinates and can therefore be ignored. The image-point displacement caused by terrain relief is similar to that caused by the curvature of the earth. 4) > > Zc À Yc 2 3 > > dZ : dy ¼ Àf 2 Z where dx and dy are the image-point displacements caused by the terrain relief, X ¼ a1 ðX À XS Þ þ b1 ðY À YS Þ þ c1 ðZ À ZS Þ; Y ¼ a2 ðX À XS Þ þ b2 ðY À YS Þ þ c2 ðZ À ZS Þ; Z ¼ a3 ðX À XS Þ þ b3 ðY À YS Þ þ c3 ðZ À ZS Þ: In projective imagery, the direction of the image-point displacement caused by terrain relief is away from the principal point, in contrast with its effect on radar imagery.

1 Coupled Device) array; and the projection mode that the user ultimately selects. Toutin (2004a) suggested that the sources of systematic errors that produce geometric distortions of satellite remote-sensing imagery can be classified into two types: errors from the observation devices (the remote-sensing platform, the sensor, and other measuring devices of the imaging system such as gyroscope and astronomical instruments) and errors that arise from the observed objects (such as atmosphere and earth).

Furthermore, the model parameters can be solved easily. The most common empirical geometric processing models include the general polynomial model, the direct linear transformation model, the affine transformation model, and the rational function model (RFM). The RFM is an expansion of the first three models. It is a more general and perfect empirical geometric processing model. Because the IKONOS high-resolution satellite imagery used in the United States employs the RFM to replace the rigorous geometric processing model based on the collinearity condition equation for the geometric processing and object positioning of satellite imagery, the RFM has gained considerable attention, and it has been studied by many scholars.
