These primers outline the current procedures developed and used by the Photogrammetry team of the Astrogeology Science Center, USGS, for stereo processing using planetary stereo imagery, such as HiRISE. To follow these procedures at your own facility, you will need the following:

  • Training datasets
  • Astrogeology’s in-house software and PERL scripts
  • This tutorial
  • ISIS installed and operational

All these files will be placed at this github site and is publicly accessible.

This tutorial represents presentations from latest training workshops on SOCET SET® processing for Planetary Stereo Imagery. The presentation file supplements this tutorial by providing some background on Astrogeology’s photogrammetric processing methodologies, as well as helpful tips. The intended audience for this tutorial is threefold. First, we have collected much of this information in our efforts to support colleagues who have set up digital photogrammetric workstations at their home institutions with the goal of using them for topographic mapping with planetary stereo imagery such as HiRISE images. Second, this document forms the basis of the preliminary training we provide to scientists who come to Flagstaff to use the Planetary Photogrammetry Guest Facility established by the USGS and the NASA Planetary Geology and Geophysics and Planetary Major Equipment Programs in 2009. Third, this tutorial is also used as training tool a for Astrogeology Science Center members.

Finally, this Primer is intended to help with processing generic planetary stereo imagery which includes examples for line scanners, framing cameras as well as other sensors. In using this Primer, it is essential to view it as a work in progress, since new techniques are continuously developed to meet changes in hardware needs and evolving software. We have included several step-by-step details for the new SOCET SET® user; and we continuously add tips and short cuts for the rather advanced and skilled users. If you have any good short cuts and suggestions to add to the tutorial, please let us know and we will incorporate your material with proper credit.
