Abstract : The real-time automated registration of multi-sensor imagery begins with the generation of control information. A specific application may require the registration of newly acquired data to an existing spatial database (absolute registration), or to other images of a series (relative registration). This study examines the feasibility and upper-level design of a system capable of providing the control information required for a range of image registration tasks and image types. In general, the control generator we suggest will be guided by a spatial database maintaining information about the feature content of the area of interest. A rule based query generator will extract candidate ground control optimized for the particular image type and geometry at hand.
