Presently, satellite stereo survey becomes more and more popular. Many new RSD satellite will be launched in the next years and dozens are successfully operated today. Racurs’s team has tested KOMPSAT-3 stereopair (GSD=0.8, convergence angle=44 degrees) and evaluated accuracy of KOMPSAT-3 digital surface model(DSM) vs DSM from aerial survey (GSD=0.18m).
The following characteristics of KOMPSAT-3 data were tested:
• RPC accuracy;
• Stereopair inner geometry;
• Stereopair DSM accuracy comparing with aerial survey DSM.
