  • areas of importance in preparation for the exam WS 5 Photogrammetry 101 Photogrammetry for Non Photogrammetrists Monday half day AM Lori Phillips Boeing Autometric Inc This workshop provides the fundamentals of photogrammetry to new hires of photogrammetric mapping firms and or current GIS mapping specialists who are contemplating expanding their practices to include photogrammetry It is also an excellent review for current photogrammetric specialists The goal of the workshop is to present principles of all components of photogrammetric processing After completing this workshop participants should have a clear understanding of how photogrammetry works uses for photogrammetry and the accuracy that can be achieved using photogrammetry I Cameras and Film II Scanners III Fundamentals scale collinearity relief displacement IV Stereo parallax base to height ratio vertical exaggeration V Orientations and 3D data collection VI Single Photo Resection orthophotos mosaicking VII Aerotriangulation VIII Flight job planning IX Map Projections X Review WS 6 Assessing the Accuracy of GIS Information Created from Remotely Sensed Data Principles and Practices Monday half day PM Dr Russell G Congalton Kass Green University of New Hampshire Space Imaging LLC This course focuses on the principles techniques and practical aspects of assessing the accuracy of GIS information derived from remotely sensed data Participants will receive instruction in how to design accuracy assessment procedures allocate accuracy assessment samples collect both field and photo reference data and analyze accuracy assessment results Examples of accuracy assessment case studies based on actual project data will be presented and discussed Each participant in this course will come away with a solid understanding of accuracy assessment procedures for spatial data and the knowledge to properly interpret the results of such procedures In order to maximize the benefits of completing this course participants should have previous experience with GIS and remotely sensed data In addition a good understanding of statistical principles is also strongly suggested I Introduction II Overview A Historical Review 1 Aerial photography 2 Digital assessments III Data Collection Considerations A Classification Scheme B Sample Design 1 Data distribution 2 Randomness 3 Spatial autocorrelation 4 Sample size 5 Sampling scheme 6 Sample unit C Reference Data Collection 1 Forms IV Basic Analysis Techniques A Non site Specific Assessments B Site Specific Assessments 1 The Error Matrix 2 Analysis Techniques 3 Confidence Limits 4 Area Estimation Correction V Practicals A Impact of Sample Design on Cost B Recommendations for Collection of Reference Data C Sources of Variation in Reference Data D Qualitative vs Quantitative Analysis E Local vs Regional vs Global Assessments VI Advanced Topics A Beyond the Error Matrix B Complex Data Sets VII Case Study VIII Conclusions TUESDAY WORKSHOPS May 6 2003 WS 7 Performance Accuracy and Economics of Imaging Sensors LIDAR and IFSAR for DEM Generation Tuesday Full day Mike Renslow Bryan Mercer Spencer B Gross Inc Intermap Technologies Corp There are a number of existing imaging and remote sensing systems that are specifically designed for surface data generation These include IFSAR Interferometric SAR LIDAR and Aerial Photography as well as spaceborne optical and radar stereo options This workshop aims at providing a comprehensive understanding of the technology accuracy and comparative performance of the various alternatives available for surface generation with particular emphasis on IFSAR and LIDAR technologies The economic viability and cost effectiveness of these systems will also be examined from a comparative point of view The following topics will be addressed I Background on Image Acquisition Techniques II Basic Photogrammetric Principles III LIDAR Principles and Applications IV IFSAR Principles and Applications V Satellite borne RADAR and Imaging Systems for DEM Generation VI Cost and Performance Inter comparisons Including Accuracy Evaluation VII Overview of Standards and Guidelines for Active Sensor Data VIII Outlook for the Future WS 8 Image Classification techniques for the development of accurate detailed quantitative land cover data Tuesday full day Kenneth A Stumpf Geographic Resource Solutions The workshop is designed as a workflow that takes participants through stages and aspects in the development of a successful land cover data derivation project and contrasts traditional and alternative techniques It presents alternative perspectives on successful implementation of terrain sensitive illumination correction early implementation of a GIS and database to minimize planning and collection effort while maximizing results and on key classification scheme issues It also expands on crucial GPS issues for aerial data gathering use of data loggers to standardize data collection and guide field efforts as well as on advantages and techniques for quantitative data collection the use of in situ classifications to monitor field progress and field data verification The agenda progresses into the image training and classification stages expanding on alternative treatment of cover characteristics and class data to maintain detail information at the pixel level techniques for the resolution of confusion and development of a final pixel map I Introduction II Project Planning Considerations III Vegetation Classification Scheme VCS A Importance B Components IV Image Processing Techniques and Concerns A Image Quality Concerns B Terrain Data Concerns C Minimization of terrain induced differential illumination D Additional image enhancement techniques V Techniques for Improved Accuracy Field Data Collection A Site Selection and Storage B GIS driven Data Collection C Data Transfer Storage and Evaluation VI Image Training A Lumping vs splitting of cover characteristics B Supervised training of visited sites C Class Splitting vs lumping D Resolving Class confusion E Unsupervised ISO clustering VII Image Classification A From supervised classes B From unsupervised classes C Accurate pixel map building blocks for subsequent vector generation processes VIII Aggregation Techniques A Pixels vs Polygons B Traditional Approaches C Ecological Rule based Pixel Aggregation D Benefits IX Accuracy Assessment A Sources of reference data B Agreement vs Accuracy C Sampling Design WS 9 A Handle on the Accuracy of Imagery based Digital Elevation Data in Softcopy Environment Tuesday full day Dr Raad A Saleh Ms Claire Kiedrowski S J International Boeing Autometric Automation has become a driving force in end to end softcopy production of digital elevation and other surface models The primary source data are film based
