Digital images collected form airborne or space-borne sensors often contain systematic and non-systematic geometric errors that arises from the earth curvature, platform motion, relief displacement, nonlinearities in scanning motion, the earth rotation, etc . [1]. The intent of geometric correction is to compensate for the distortions introduced by these factors so that the correct image will have the highest practical geometric integrity.
