This volume describes modern procedures for calibrating digital optical scanner and radiometer data acquired for Earth observations. The contents address radiometric, geometric, and geopositional calibration parameters, the definitions of these parameters, and current D est practices D " for their measurement. Three stimuli guided the evolution of this work: the growing practice of fusing imagery from a variety of sensors having different data collection strategies and data formats, thereby demanding that image quality be assessable in traceable Standard International Units (SIU); the need to co-register raster and vector data sets in a variety of geospatial architectures requiring common mapping projections; and, the expanding number of data and image types derived from wide field-of-view, narrow swath, multi-angular stereoscopic, and both active and passive sensing strategies, the combination of which permits broader understanding of Earth as a tapestry of complex systems. The Joint ISPRS/CEOS WGCV Task Force on Radiometric and Geometric Calibration, which prepared this volume, recognizes the need for, and aims to develop, a set of calibration practices and consisten parameter definitions that will ensure the quality of future Earth observation imagery for everyone who uses these resources. International organizations, national governments, and regional and local authorities all require accurate, high-quality imagery for their increasingly complex decision-making endeavors. Anyone who supplies such imagery should redouble their efforts to provide products that meet the needs of their user constituencies, whether in the name of public health at the local level, tracking economic and social trends at a national level, or assessing Earth's changing environments on a global scale.
