The USGS RST ASPRS 2010 paper titled “Geometric Evaluation and Validation of Aerial and Satellite Data Using Sioux Falls Geometric Test Range” is featured and available through the GISCafe.  This paper was co-authored by Aparajithan Sampath, Don Moe, Jon Christopherson, and Gregory Stensaas.   The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed the first of a series of geometric test ranges over Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The purposes of these test ranges are for evaluating, validating and characterizing high resolution satellite and aerial images. The Sioux Falls test range uses accurate and standardized high resolution aerial orthophotos as a reference dataset to compare and characterize the geometric accuracy of satellite and aerial images.
